I’ve made two outfits from this pattern already! It’s easy, and so cute! I did have a little trouble turning the pinafore bodice right side out. But, I found that by trimming the seams to 1/8 inch, seemed to help a lot. It looks great on both my American girl doll, and my Madame Alexander.
I have made the cape and overall everything went together vert eady. Insrtuctions very clear
Three looks to this pattern. One very small problem is that the front facing needs slightly enlargef. I have made several dresses from this pattern.
This is a wonderful pattern. It is so versatile and goes together just beautifully. I purchased the same pattern for 14.5" dolls as well. Love, love, love it!
If you only buy one pattern. this is it! You could make an outfit every day for a month and everyone could be different. So many choices. I LOVE IT!
