I was looking for a pattern with that perfect “Christmas Dress” look, and this was definitely it! The dress has lots of details that add to it’s charm, although nothing particularly difficult. The fit was excellent, and instructions were well written. (I’m not always a fan of big sashes on dresses, as they can be difficult for children to tie, but this one had to have one!)
This pattern was brilliant. Lots of variations with a bit of imagination.Great basic pattern to extend off.
Love this pattern! Have made the dress several times out of vintage fabric for the new American Girl Doll, Nanea. The rompers are just as cute and have made three of them. I'm addicted! Sewing in Hudsonville.
