While I am a beginner at sewing, the directions were more than adequate to walk me through all the bits and pieces of this multi-step and multi-piece design. We made the fox and the panda so far, and both look really cute on American Girl dolls! We couldn't be more pleased with how they turned out. The trickiest part for me was getting the velcro closure to be correct under the chin. I was a bit confused the first time around, but got it figured out the second time. So just pay attention there and think ahead to how things will be hemmed once the hood is added. I shared the finished products on social media and they got so many compliments, I definitely recommend this pattern.
The pattern was easy to follow and the onesie turned out great! I love the variations in the designs!
I made this to match a onesie I made for my granddaughter for Christmas and am very pleased with it. I made it plain, without any of the animal options so can't comment on those. I sewed most of it on my overlocker and substituted a zip for the Velcro so that it matches my granddaughter's. I'm looking forward to seeing her reaction when she receives it for her birthday later this month.
