Very easy to follow instructions. I took the advice of the pattern maker and basted many areas before machine sewing as I was using fleece which tends to slip around anyway. I also basted using a different colored thread which made it easier to spot the stitches when removing them. The finished outfit was just darling!
You have the cutest patterns for everything I am looking for. Thank you for providing such good pictures and instructions. I have not had the opportunity to try this particular pattern for my granddaughter, but look forward to making it soon. I have not had a bad pattern/instructions, thanks again for your good work.
I received this pattern as one of the Friday Freebies and finally decided to make it for an easter gift for someone. It was a great pattern. It went together very quickly. Had it done in about 4 hours. I know it called for a knit however I used flannel and fleece and it fit very well. Again great pattern.
