I changed the bows a bit and added buttons to the pockets. Many things you can do to embellish the dress to your liking. I embroidered Scotty dogs on leashes at base of dress. This was the first time working this pattern. Second time through will be easier. All-in-all a nice pattern.
Easy to follow pattern. Fun to make and it turns out very pretty. Great for lots of different fabric patterns.
I made thos dress for my little Les Cheries doll. It was very easy, and it fits perfectly! It looks so cute on her too!
Love this pattern . Dress for Wellie Wisher just as cute as the same pattern for the 18 inch doll!
I bought this pattern to challenge myself and It was easy to follow and the results were great. My one question is that I chose Gingham and it really was too flimsy. I stabilized the heck out of it and it worked, but could I have lined it with fusible interfacing or would the curved seams not worked? Deb PS great fit too.
