I really liked this pattern. I made it up for the Corolle Les Cheries as the waist etc measurements seemed ok, and for this first time I didn't make a fancy trim but used a contrasting fabric for the front panel on each (I have 2 granddaughters with a doll each!) It was nice and easy to cut out and sew - and the elastic went in well. I will be using it again once I have seen the skirts on the dolls and know if I should make any more alterations in the pattern sizing. And look forward to experimenting with different trims.
I got to test this pattern and it really goes together nicely. I did a quick, non trimmed version but am anxious to try some of the different trims suggested. There are so many possibilities! It fits really nicely too.
