This design was simple sewing. It's a very basic style with only the addition of pockets to make it unique. That may sound like a critique, but in actuality it means this style is a realistic representation of the casual type clothing most children wear. I usually object to patterns that presume everyone has access to a serger (as this designer's do), but for a pattern meant to be sewn from knit fabric additional allowances for hemming are not needed. I did not add the waistline top stitching since I knew that my fabric would stretch out unattractively if I had. I would have enjoyed sewing directions for the hat pictured on the cover photo, but they are not included. The pattern pieces are well drafted and scaled, the directions are clear, and this pattern is easy enough sewing that even a new sewist will be successful.
Unless you tend to sew knit fabric, this pattern is not for you. I tried to use cotton fabric and pattern pieces do not line up. I had to re-invent this pattern to make it work. I will not believe the line - this pattern designed to work with knit OR WOVEN fabrics again, Very disappointed.
I loved this pattern. It was easy to sew and so cute when it was finished! Thankyou.
I've made this in knit and woven cotton fabrics. Great look and bodice has room for some machine embroidery or cute embellishments. The pockets are what make this dress a great casual look for your doll. Pictures help for the beginner seamstress who wants to try this.
Has anyone really checked out this pattern to see if it really sews good. Pocket does not fit facing unless you stretch it. sleeve seam does not match unless you stretch the short side. The top of the dress side seam is 1/4" off from the front to the back and I bought this pattern because I thought it was cute and now have to redo it. I have bought so many patterns from Pixie and I now will have to check them out before I destroy any more of my fine fabrics. I used to manufacture childrens formas and I made my own patterns and graded them too, so I do know what I am talking about. You may ask then why do I buy patterns, I just want to save some time having to draft them. But I guess with this one I should have............
