Fun and rewarding project

This was my first Kindred Thread pattern, and I enjoyed making it very much. I completed all five pieces (knickers, waistcoat, shirt, tie, and hat) and found the instructions and illustrations very clear. Everything fit my Journey Girl doll except for the hat, which was a bit too small. Will definitely try more patterns from Kindred Thread.
