So much fun to make. Very easy
I love this pattern! It is so cute. The directions are clear and easy to follow. While it is a relatively simple pattern, the results are adorable. I have some young girls who want me to teach them to sew. I think this will be a perfect pattern to teach them elastic insertion, zigzagging over elastic, applying trim, seam finishing, and other fundamentals. And I know they will love the results!
I just love making the little clown outfit although the next one i make i will have to make a little longer, its a little short but otherwise great.
Love it, sewed up so nice and turned out so cute
This is a really cute pattern. The only thing I wish it had was a different hat. I like the kind that the pattern is a circle and you gather the edge (about and inch or so from edge to make a ruffle around edge) by inserting elastic then add a pom pom on top. I think this is much cuter for a girlish look.
