Easy to sew, the Tri-City Knit Dress is a great pattern for your first knit outfit. A serger is not required. Detailed instructions and pictures guide you through each step. Soon your "little mommy's" baby will be dressed in style.
The Tri-City Knit Dress has a curved empire waist for a flattering look and hook and loop tape or snaps in back. The PDF pattern includes 2 length variations (above the knee, and long shirt), and 3 sleeve length variations (long, three-quarter, and short). The Circle Leggings feature a patch on the rear, cuffs and elastic in the waist.

I needed some practice on the serger to sew the circle. I struggled and finally gave up for awhile and altered the pattern to be just plain leggings. I love the circle design so I won't give up. Great pattern love the design concept.
So tired of boring commercial patterns for Bitty. This pattern is a breath of fresh air. It's modern and fun to make in vibrant colors. The pattern fits well and the instructions are terrific. Five Stars!
Directions were easy to follow and the outfit went together easily. I'm wary using non Liberty Jane patterns for American Girl dolls because I've had fit issues with other patterns in the past. No fit issues with this pattern.
I made the outfit, short sleeved top and leggings for my 2yr old granddaughter's '15" Water Baby doll' Snug since the doll is wiggly filled with water but looks adorable. My daughter said the other clothes the doll had were too old fashioned looking. Now Baby Zoe is in style! Easy to follow directions. I'll be making more.
This is a very cute pattern. I have made 3 outfits and plan on making more. Fits the Bitty Baby very good and would highly recommend this pattern.
