Fits beautifully

This pattern goes together beautifully. It makes a great pair of knickers for any boy doll. Considering the amount of detail in this suit it went together rather quickly with its clear instructions and well marked pattern pieces.

Excellent pattern

Excellent pattern, very well done and very well explained. Personally, I added sleeves to the vest, but the original version is perfect.

Boys Knicker Suit

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

Boys knicker suit

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.
