This is a fun and easy top to make. Instructions are very thorough and have detailed photos. I love that a back closure is not necessary and that it goes over the doll's hips easily.

My experience was good. The directions were very clear. I made a couple of changes to fit the outfit I was creating. I am very pleased with my purchase.
