Pattern was easy to use. I noticed some differences from the Wellie Wisher pattern and was happy with the different neckline. I did make some changes to the hemline but this came together fairly quickly and easily. A nice pattern if you don't like knits!
Really cute shirt with easy to follow directions. A perfect shirt for those of us who don't like sewing knits!
This pattern went together so easily. I really like Forever 18 Inches patterns. Great instructions and lots of tips. Nice to have a basic go-to top.
When I read through the instructions I was a little intimidated. The tiny seams that my machine loves to suck into the sewing machine abyss...The tedious steps. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how fast this went. My little shirt turned out adorable! I left the back open and sewed in a 3 1/2" x 1/2" piece of velcro. It leaves enough wiggle room at the bottom of the top to fit any doll when you do it that way. Thank you for a wonderful pattern. I absolutely dread sewing with knits, so this will definitely be my go-to shirt pattern for my girl's AG dolls.
