I used the bodice only so far to replace in a different pattern , I found it to be a wee bit snug and the second dress , I used Clara but cut it out just a hair bigger . Nice to know that before I use the whole pattern
Love this pattern and that there are many variations that can be done with it.
i found this pattern very easy to read and it was easy to cut out. i have chosen a satin material for it and it does look so very sweet. enjoyed making up the pattern
I love it I just got done making it got my granddaughter's AG doll. The only thing I will Chang on it is make the skirt a little longer cause even sewing it 1/4" seam it was about 1 & 1/2" to short. I did add 1/4" to top part cause I noticed on my last pattern top was to tight on top only. But all and all its wonderful and beautiful. Thank you.
