I resized this pattern to fit my My Friend Mandy doll, the top I reduced 80% and the bottom 85%. The pattern was easy to sew and fits great. It took about an hour cut and make both pieces.
This is a great way to use up scraps. It would also be a good pattern to teach someone to sew. The trickiest part would be sewing the bias binding. Pattern was well written and photos and instructions nice and clear. I used crimpelene for the scooter and crepe for the top. Both fashion fabrics from the '70's.
My bigtgest problem with this pattern was agonizing over which combination of the many I could create from my stash. The pattern is so simple and so wearable for the dolls I keep coming up with new combinations. One thought for those sewing for dolls whose owners are 5 years or less...If they don't know how to tie their shoes, think up a different way to close the halter straps. I used velcro for one halter and snaps for the other. both worked.
Cute, easy to sew pattern. Uses scrapes of material. Fits well. Nicely finished.
