I love the style of this dress. I used a zipper instead of velcro at the back. The fabric was designed by Kaffe Fassett. I made a dress for my eldest daughter in this fabric years ago, and I am thrilled to have a mini-me version made by some of the remnants.

Enjoyed making this pattern

The pattern was easy to follow and went together smoothly. I took the other reviewer's advice and added a little to the length. I don't have a serger and prefer more finished edges, so I added to the width of the ruffles and ruffle lining so that I could turn the edges in. I wish I would have thought to do that to the bodice, and I could have enclosed the edges with the lining - I'll do that next time. I also may add a little to the length of the criss cross straps so that I can angle their edges to match the angle of the neckline. I loved the sleeves and the fit was perfect for my doll. Looking forward to using many times!

This pattern was easy to sew and the directions were very clear. However, if I were to sew it again, I would make the skirt longer. Even the longer skirt version is mini.
