This pattern was accurate to size, and I appreciate that it can be sized for dolls with smaller waists, too. The directions were well written and easy to follow. I cut my first dress from a cloth with a scalloped cut-out edge, which made it even easier! I will definitely be making a variety of these!
This little dress, with the overlay was not difficult at all to put together. I did have to follow the directions carefully so that the lining and overlay all came out beautifully when it was turned to the right side. The add-on tie really makes this appear as if the overlay ties at the front of the dress. Very cute, and it fits like a glove!. Thank you!
This pattern went together quickly and turned out well.
