I’ve made this dress twice … first time as designed, and the second time using rick rack to emphasize the princess seams. Liberty Jane patterns are always stylish designs with well written instructions, and I always learn something new making them. I like patterns that include a zipper closure, and this one includes excellent instructions for installing an invisible zipper. The fit was just right on my modern AG doll. I haven’t tried the top version yet, but I definitely will!
Enjoyed making this top. I opted not to put lace on and it came together very easy.
I thought this pattern was easy to put together and looks so cute on the doll.
I loved making this dress and I will make it again. Easy t follow instructions, perfect fit.
