I like making this pattern as it sews up quickly. I do line the bodice for a finished look. This pattern is a little tight on the older AG dolls, so if you are sewing for one of them you make want to pay close attention to the seam allowances. I used a lot of satin when sewing this dress for a dressy look, which could also be why the tighter fit (satin has no give). It is really festive with satin fabric and lace.
I made this dress out of a brocade fabric. It turned out beautiful! This a very simple pattern with easy to follow instructions. Great for a beginner.
The bodice made up beautifully and the neckline looked very neat. Just the right amount of puffiness in the sleeves, to look cute. The skirt did not have a pattern, just measurements, which I made longer, as I wanted a full length dress. I made this out of burgundy shiny polyester and added white lace trim at the waist. It hung well. This pattern would adapt to any fabric for any season. I plan to make a few summer dresses next, in crisp poly/cotton. Thank you for this easy to sew, yet stylish pattern.
