Love this pattern with the darts in the front and the tucks in the back. The sleeves originally got my attention so puffy and almost old fashioned looing. The pattern is easy to follow and the satisfaction when complete is amazing. The fit is prefect and the finished product looks fantastic on the doll. Made some in both 18 and Wellie sizes. The perfect project!! Thank you Geniwren
Looks great and very easy to make
Only made the skirt as wanted a quick project and it didn't fail to please as it took all about thirty minutes if that from cutting out the pattern, sewing and pressing in between. That said; would highly recommend it for such a purpose. Tip: In event you are using a fat quarter and may not have the length for the lower skirt; piece the additional required amount to it by cutting it in two separate pieces which will place the seams at the back of the garment. (Don't forget to add an additional l/2" (l/4" + 1/4")). Hope to get around to making the blouse when time allows as love the fact that it is suitable for a cotton or similar fabric and not necessarily a knit. Also shall mention, within the instructions Jen gives some wonderful tips for the novice sewer.
It is a very nice pattern for my little doll.
