Fabulous pattern. Clear, concise instructions from start to finish.
Great pattern, love it thank you
This pattern is so cute - easy to make - I made the outfit for Hearts to hearts doll It fits well , has lots of possibilities
This is one of the most fun patterns I have ever used. I just love how versatile it is. It's easy to sew up and would be great for a beginner, but also great for the advanced sewiist!
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.
