I was super excited when this pattern came out and I bought it immediately. It fits my knockoff doll perfectly (in fact, is a little large) and goes together like a dream. I didn't get at first why there is an underlining but I can definitely see how it makes the top fit and look better. I used a lightweight knit and a cotton to make the top, and both worked well. I can see doing a lace overlay and having it look great- maybe that will be my next project!
Shirt was to small for American doll, will need to adjust pattern, otherwise easy to follow pattern.
