This was a great pattern with clear instructions, very user friendly. This doll is a 21” doll from the early 1900. My grandmother had dressed him as a baby for the last 100 years. I decided it was time to grow him up a bit. I had to make a few adjustments to the length and width, but the pattern made it very easy to do so
This is the second pattern I have purchased from you and both times it has worked well, your instructions have been very clear and for myself learning as I go they were a big help.
A terrific pattern. Instructions are clear and fit is okay.
this was an excellent experience.
