I really loved making this outfit, I chose to do set 2 and it knit up very quickly and fits my AG doll perfectly. So cute and easy to put on and take off for my granddaughters. Instructions are very detailed and easy to follow and my being left handed made no real difference except the buttons button on the opposite way.
