This used to be a shirt that made me look fat. It was in my sewing room hoping for a finer destiny for several years, and I was delighted to find this pattern. I wanted to use more of the material, so made it long. I think the doll needs a violin and bow to hold up as she acknowledges her applause. It sews up fast and easy and doesn't appear so with the use of this special fabric - my favorite kind of project. I think the top would be great also in a little party dress with bows in the corners of the neckline.
Pattern was vert easy to make up and fitted doll well. I did add a bit to the width of te skirt decades thr ruffles of my fabric were not very full. It was not difficult to ease the extra inch onto the bodice. I have also used the bodice for a jumpsuit. Cheers Elizabeth.
I have not had a chance to try this pattern out yet. After reading over the directions; which seem to be clearly written, I'm sure the dress will turn out beautiful!
I made this dress last week for my granddaughter's doll. It came out so nicely that I just had to post a review. It was a dream to sew, and looks fabulous on both new Samantha and old Felicity (my model). Enjoy!
This was such a fun dress to make. My granddaughter was so very excited to see it done.
