I enjoyed making this dress, but I must admit it had me pulling my hair out a couple of times. But once I had it sorted out it came together like a dream. My only ‘grumble’ is that I do not have an “American Girl” doll. I have the “our Generation doll” and she is not the same size ( she is supposed to be) and I must remember to make the outfits (specially the dresses) shorter. Or as my son suggested I stretch my doll. But once again I enjoyed knitting the pattern.
This was a wonderful pattern to test. There are lots of color possibilities one can experiment with due to the nature of the dress construction. I chose to make all the stockinette parts of the dress in black and the textured parts in white. A truly stunning pattern that was a delight to knit!
