My aunt and I made this for my American Girl doll, and it was very fun to make! The instructions were easy to follow, and the only problems we had were from trying to use too heavy-duty thread. The uniform turned out super cute, and I'm considering making more for my other dolls! I did leave off two of the pockets and the hook-and-loop tape from the jacket due to personal preference (and historical accuracy, I was going for a Korean War era uniform).
This pattern is awesome and really fun to sew. I liked having the templates for making the pockets. The collar turned out fabulous too. I did have a struggle sewing the hat but that is probably due to my choice of really stiff fusible facing. It turned out quite durable and cute anyway!
It very nice true looking but not for beginners.
It was a lot of work but it was worth it. the instructions were very clear. I make a different display every month to show my dolls. the uniform is for November 11 Canada rememberance day.
