It was great! Thank you for all your great patterns that you have designed! Deb
I think they are adorable. The pattern fits well and was easy to understand. Will make again as I have one granddaughter and three great granddaughters that have 18" dolls. They will make great gifts.
My experience using this pattern was enjoyable! I found it relatively easy to follow and Considering I'm fairly new to making doll Cothes and had never actually put pockets on anything before I would say it was easier than I thought it was going to be. Highly recommend for even the most novice of sewers. I wish I could post a picture! Thank you for the excellent pattern.
A bit of a struggle as we do not have steam a seam in South Africa. America is truly the country of gismo's and gadgets! I improvised a bit but very strangely the inner seam between the legs between back and front does not match? The front is longer than the back. Maybe it's just me but the 2nd overall I made I cut on 1/4" for the back inner leg seam. What really gave me grief was the placket with the loop. To solve this I folded the back seam in at the top where the placket fits before stitching the entire back seam. Then the placket and placket lining overlocked at the bottom point. Slid the top placket under and stitched to back. Then overlocked the back at the side back right up to the top of the placket. After that turned in the top sides under the arms. Really loved the pattern. Very cute!
