Easy to follow pattern. Made the pantsuit for a smaller doll. Worked very well. During this time, I am passing time recreating different patterns from the XXth century, trying to have one or two for each decade. Thanks.
I absolutely love this pattern, i have already made 3 of the jumpsuits and found the pattern easy to read. The printed scale was great so I enlarged the pattern to the correct size. The jumpsuit looked really tailored and fitted both my American girl dolls and my Florrie dolls. I would recommend this pattern.
Absolutely love this pattern. As with all of Keepers Dolly Duds patterns, the instructions were easy to understand and the fit was perfect. I have been a fan of this designer for many years and have 80% of her patterns. I love every one of them and am always waiting for the next, new release!
