I LOVE this pattern! Excellent directions and excellent fit! So many options with this pattern! Great if you want to make it sleeveless, lots of room for embroidery on the bodice front. Just simply adorable!
Pattern was easy to use. Made for Hearts for Hearts doll. Made slight adaptation to neckline, raised 1/4". My granddaughter prefers a higher neckline for her dolls. Decreased center front by 1/16" on fold to better fit the smaller doll. Granddaughter was very pleased with the result. "Grandma, the dress fit just right."
this pattern was easy to follow and easy to sew up. I made a the skirt a bit longer and with an overlay to make a princess dress for my doll.
