Excellent Pleats!

Easy to follow, beautiful outcome. The pleated circle skirt is measured and sized perfectly.

Delightful!

Not as simple a pattern as would appear, it requires some precision and patience but the result is adorable and truly an example of “real” clothing for dolls.

Pretty Pleats

Classic pleated dress. This would be one of those patterns you put in your reference file of "Go To" patterns. See how the dress gives the doll an hour glass shape - it's the pattern design which gives this illusion. The way the skirt is designed, the flare of the skirt, that's what gives it the attractive shape and classic design. It would work in the 40's as well as today. Glad I was a tester for this one.

Sweet and Classic Design

As tester for this pattern, I can say that it is well-designed with clear easy-to-follow instructions. Pressing AS YOU SEW is imperative, though, for good results!
