Great, I always enjoy the lovely patterns, they have extensive directions and are easy to follow pattern. They are great and I thank you for the free patterns you allow us to have.
Thank you for offering this pattern. I cut it out and sewed it in just a couple of hours following your pattern and thorough directions. The suggestions for layout and knit fabric was very helpful. Since I already had a stretch knit fabric on hand, I made the tunic and added a contrasting lace trim where the bodice and neckline/shoulder seam came together. I also sewed a matching pull-on knit pants, altering the pants with the same banded hem in your pattern.. I was pleased with the result as it is both a trendy and casual look. It fit my granddaughter's AG doll perfectly. I will be making this again.
This shirt was easy to make and very pretty when finished.
