The top was easy to sew & looks quite cute. I am an experienced sewist & was disappointed to discover that the top didn’t fit the 18” dolls that my daughter had. The issue was that the top was too small around the shoulders/armholes & couldn’t close at the top. (I chose to sew three small buttons at the back. The bottom two close, the the top one cannot as it is too small.) In hindsight, I should have checked the fit on the doll as I was sewing; lesson learned.
Very good instructions in pattern. Fits well.
I have made several of these outfits and was very pleased. This half vest dress for an 18" doll has to be the best so far. I am 73 and making doll clothes for my great grand daughter for Christmas. I did not think that I could make this outfit; it was so easy that it surprised me. If I can make the outfits so can anyone. I am very pleased. Thank you for giving the patterns.
This is the cutest top. I have made several of them using different types of fabrics. The pattern is well written and easy to follow. I made one in stretchy red velvet with a tiny poinsettia sewn to the gathered part. It is absolutely perfect for Christmas. I paired it with black velvet leggings. Love it!
