The directions could have been better. I wasted a lot of time printing and taping the patterns, when it could have been much easier if just given the dimensions of the pieces. I made a number of modifications to this pattern. I used Pellon 701 instead of the recommended canvas. That Pellon gives the doll pouches more stability.
I have made 2 so far as gift, and I plan to make at least one for myself. I had to adjust the width of the hanger strips, because the pattern was too wide for the doll hangers I purchased online. It would probably work for children hangers, the ones used for baby clothes. Otherwise it was perfect. The instructions are clear and customization is easy. The only minor criticism I have is that it would be nice to have the measurements for each piece in the instructions, rather than on the pattern pieces. I find it a waste of time and paper having to print rectangles. Thank you for a very useful idea!
The pattern and plans along with suggested layouts were wonderful. My daughter-in-law and I were couldn't wait to get one made for my two granddaughters. Since the door to their closet was already in use we decided on making it to fit on the wall behind the room door. Thus I scaled up the fabrick to fit the wall allotment and fitted the pockets to it. Thank you for a great plan.
This is a great pattern, very versatile, and A-B-C clear instructions. I found it challenging to work with canvas and vinyl, but the effort was worth it. If you have never, look at a few tutorials on working with vinyl before you start. I found it very helpful to have the full size pattern pieces rather than measurements alone, as suggested in another review. I truly appreciate and enjoy My Angie Girl patterns.
