I tested this pattern for the designer and it was so much fun to sew. The hardest part was choosing which fabrics to use - because I chose a busy print I found the sleeve tabs didn't show up well, so I used a contrasting fabric for them and for the front linings. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. The sleeves and pants legs were the exact length needed for my Pleasant Company and my Mattel doll and the fit in the body is perfect. The designer includes tips along the way, which is a lovely touch. It's almost like she is sitting behind me as I sew. Thanks so much for a fun pattern, Margie.
