It was really easy and came together well. A little confused with the armhole construction. So I went my own way with that. I wii make the sleeve version soon. It’s a nice pattern
This is an amazing pattern. It’s easier than I thought it would be and is so easy to put together!! I love that it works as a girl OR boy doll shoe pattern!!!!
I just love this pattern it is so easy and quick to make it is adorable on my doll.
Love this pattern. Very simple to sew and very cute. I made the sleeveless version and knitted a sweater to go with it. Will use this pattern again.
