I made the skort. It was easy and adorable. Only reason for 4 stars is because the pattern pieces don't perfectly line up on the side seams. The front piece is 1/8" too short at the side seams. That's significant in the 1/4" Seam Allowance. The faux wrap w/o the ruffle is too short also if you want it to come down to the hem of the shorts at the side seam. These are easy enough adjustments but I didn't realize until after I'd attempted to make my first pair. I just like to be able to cut and sew and everything lines up!
cute outfit, easy instructions and good fit
The skort set turned out well. I made two sets. The reversible shirt was tricky. On the second set, I didn't topstitch the sleeve edges until after sewing the side seams, and though it was awkward to sew around the tiny sleeves, it came out better than the one I made following the provided directions. It made a very cute outfit.
So far, I just made the sleeveless turtleneck top from this pattern to go with another outfit I had been working on. It looks beautiful! It went together well and the fit was perfect!
There are three giggly girls in my neighborhood this morning - excited because their dolls are wearing skorts today! The pattern was easy and quick. My only change was to shorten the waist elastic. Thank you for another great pattern.
