This pattern is really cute. I did not make the Fichu and did not add the ruffle at the neck of the dress. A friend asked me to make an Anne of Green Gables outfit for her granddaughters birthday. I turned the pinafore opening to the back and did not add the lace trim as I was wanting a plainer look. It was for a journey doll and the outfit came out beautiful and she was thrilled. This pattern can be dressed up or down and I would highly recommend it.
This was a lot easier to make than I anticipated! Instructions for the sleeves is a bit odd but they can be attached however you're familiar with. Very cute and so many different ways to dress this up or down with different fabrics and trims.
