All Buttoned Up!

This is a great pattern! Having a pattern that fits both the 18 inch and the 15 inch dolls is awesome. I plan on making this pattern a lot as it is quick and easy with great directions!

All Buttoned Up

I found the pattern to be very easy to follow. I was able to finish making the dress in about an hour. Instead of snaps for closure I put a little Velcro on each strap. I have every intention of making more of them and possibly modifying the pattern a little for several different looks.

So much fun, and color block, too!

Chris Saunders' pattern for this cute jumper / dress is like a canvas for your creativity. If you're a fabric lover (or fabric hoarder lol) you're in luck with the Color Block option! Well written, with clear photos and instructions, you will find this an easy pattern to follow, and you'll be pleased with the results.
