OSK did it again a great versatile pattern for your 18" dolls. There are so many different ways to sew this, from a Dress to a top with bloomers. I even added lace and buttons to the dress for my daughters doll. I can see myself sewing many more of these. Kat's directions and pictures are nice and clear to follow and if you ever have a problem she is just a e-mail away.
Oh Sew Kat's patterns are always easy to follow and put together. This one is super cute, giving options for tops, bottoms, matching sets and even pajamas! These have been really popular since I posted them in our shop! <3
As with all Oh Sew Kat patterns, this pattern has very clear detailed instructions and comes together very quickly and most importantly according to my daughter they are very easy to use to dress her dolls by herself!!! There are so many different possibilities with this pattern for outfits to fit any occasion, from holidays to play dates or even pj's, depending on fabric and trim, you will find the only problem you will have is deciding which version to make first ;-)
If you love a pattern that has endless possibilities, this one will make you happy. All of Oh Sew Kat's patterns make me smile. They fit just right and all have an easy fit that makes them great to play with. You too will keep coming up with new color combinations!
