Polka Dot Party Dress

Love U Bunches patterns are always great - don’t know how I missed getting this one sooner. I was really drawn to one of the tester samples that used a different fabric for the full back skirt, and I had the perfect two coordinates for this. The instructions were easy to follow, and the fit was great on my modern AG doll, and there was plenty of room to add an invisible zipper closure instead of hook and loop tape.

Polka Dot Party Dress

I was so happy with the way this dress turned out. I made 2 of these along with the Love U Bunches Plain Jane shoes in matching colors. Both patterns were easy to follow with great directions.
