LJ you did it again!

WOW! this pattern was relatively easy for a jacket..finding a zipper was the hard but , once found, I was off and sewing. I am self-taught so making sure my "ruching" even was a considerable challenge..I was up for it. Thank you LJ, for making cool clothes for my hip AG chick! (sorry the bottom ruffle was tucked in the pic..)

Pixie Faire Ruched Hoodie 18 Doll Clothes Pattern Review

great looking hoodie

I am generally very pleased with this pattern. It was more difficult than I first thought; however, after making some minor changes I was able to complete the hoodie. One needs to take their time when making this hoodie. Some suggestions for improvement: 1) increase the size of the arm and cuff by approximately 1/4" to accommodate the wide hand spread on the American Girl Doll 2) add a lining to the hood (improves the appearance 3) add a tie to the hoodie, 4) double the width of the ruffle, fold in half lengthwise, then continue with the steps (makes a nice ruffle). I would still recommend this pattern if you have lots of patience.

Complex, but so rewarding!

When I first saw this pattern, I knew I'd need to try it! I was a little overwhelmed by the complexity of the pattern, but taking it step-by-step, I was able to create a stunning little hoodie of my own. Wow! Such great details, down to the ribbon binding the neckline. It looks great inside and out!


ruched hoodie

I am giving this pattern 5 stars because it is well designed and reasonably easy to sew. I am an intermediate level sewer, and make mostly doll clothes. The pattern directions were clear and the photos helpful. My only complaint is the choice of fabric color for the instructions; a lighter color with dark thread would make for clearer photos.
