I made it yesterday just a single one and it looks lovely but untill I see my grandaughters doll I havent been able to try on. Im very pleased
I enjoyed making a dress using this pattern. I did however need to make a few modifications when using a stretchy fabric for the bodice. I felt it was too big in the back and also too long of a bodice. I also added a curve to the skirt piece instead of a straight rectangle so it would hang nicer.
First time I have downloaded and used dolls pattern from this site. I was impressed with the speed that it was delivered and the ease of construction. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. I made the dress with a few minor modifications to fit Grandaughters Disney Toddler Doll (13 1/2"). It turned out great and we were all pleased with the final dress. Have an order from other Granddaughter to make a similar one for her doll !!
