I enjoyed this pattern. I had some confusion with the sleeve edge but then I realized that it is a 3/4 sleeve so my problem was irrelevant. I ended up doing a casing for the sleeve elastic anyway. All in all, I love this pattern and would make it again. Big bonus is no velcro! I love that! I made two and I added some sweet pink pom pom trim. I will definitely be making more of this pattern.
I love the outfit and it is perfect for summer time.
Easy to construct. I found it a little snug to get on over the dolls bottom, but that can be easily adjusted as I was using a Pleasant Company American girl doll as a model which have slightly wider measurements.
I really love this pattern! The instructions are clear, and it's simple to sew. Once you get the hang of it, you can put a romper together fairly quickly. I've already made four!
I just got a new doll and wanted something trendy for today! I got it with this pattern. Very easy to follow directions. It went together really fast. And for me that means I'll use the pattern often.
