Very easy to use with good instructions. I added 1/4” to back bodice seam allowance as my doll is quite sturdy. Also when gathering that much material into the skirt, makes the waist band tighter. So needed the extra even though my doll measured 11” at the waist. Really pleased with how it turned out.
