Luckily I have sewing experience or the second step of attaching the sides to the center front would have thrown me. I really had to ease that fabric and manipulate to get that seam. The turning inside out, and outside in etc to get the fully finished lining could also be a real headache - luckily I had experience with that as well. I worked slowly and carefully and did some extra trimming of seams and clipping curves that weren't in the instructions. The result of spending about 4 hours making this is very pleasing.
Very good instructions for this fully lined jacket. Will make a great fall addition for the 15" dolls.
