I confess I had to get on the pdf editor and re-arrange the instructions so they made more logical sense to me. Putting each step on a different line made it much more clear than having everything for a row in one paragraph, but it did make the instructions much longer for printing and viewing. I've made 6 of these now, and each one is cuter than the next as I grow more comfortable with the pattern and design possibilities. I've worked it in both a #1 super fine yarn and a #2 fine yarn, and both fit the Animators (#1 makes a shorter dress, but stretch in the yarn still makes it fit). Note that a variegated yarn will hide the beauty of the intricate stitching, where a solid color lets it shine.
I had so much fun making up this little dress it come prefect for the Animator dolls, I have crocheted two so far and made a hat to match. Pattern was easy to follow.
