I love this pattern. It is so easy to make, and it can be used so many different ways. I used it to make a variation of Molly's Evergreen Velvet dress, and it turned out beautifully. I will definitely be using this pattern for many other projects in the future! https://fakingitmostly.com/2017/03/13/march-is-sew-dolly/
It is a great pattern to create lovely dresses that fit AND the directions are wonderful to work with. It's become a go to pattern for me and any number of variations and trims make it look totally different.
Very cute pattern !! Instructions are really clear and there are so many ways to make this. Great designer !
As with all Kathleen's patterns this is set out very clearly with lots of detailed photos to help you. If you were only to buy one pattern you honestly can't go wrong with this one. I have made three dresses so far and a number of the different accessories and by mixing them up you can have lots of different outfits in one, I can honestly say this is one of my all-time favourite patterns to make and much more importantly it's the one my daughter loves most!!!
