As always, fabric selection is essential. I used a thin stretchy t-shirt material for the slip and it fit perfectly. I am not fond of working with sheer fabric but the pieces went together so quickly that they did not have time to fray. Clear instructions. The dress fit my Maplelea doll beautifully. All the patterns are just fabulous.
I liked the dress pattern very much, but even though I made the slip according to the pattern and directions it was too small and could not be used. I was disappointed about that as it really needed the slip. I had to resize and make adjustments and remake the slip.
Now one of my very favorite dress patterns. I have made various styles from it from fancy evening dress to country outings. Easy pattern to use.
In process - reading the instructions and laying out pieces. Would be helpful if you named the bias strip a "bias binding" so it was clear what to do with it. Also, there is no pattern piece called "Facing", but that is referred to twice in the instructions for the left front. It took two readings and analysis with the photos to realize it was the front placket piece, and I am not a novice (47 yrs of sewing experience, from curtains to wedding dresses). This is not a teaching piece for sure. But it is very attractive.
Made 2 of these dresses. Clear instructions and dress turned out very cute. Just love Liberty Jane patterns!
