Twice as Nice dress

Lovely pattern.

Awesome pattern, thank you!

Awesome pattern, thank you!

A little snug

I made all three views. The instructions were easy to follow and the Dress went together nicely. I have AG Samantha and it was a little tight getting it over her head to put it on. If there were no gathers on the front of the Dress I think it would have been too tight for the doll.

Cute Pattern but has flaws

It took me 3 tries to get the dress through the yoke and turn it. I have been sewing for 40+ years and this pattern did not seem to be for beginners. The pattern directions state that clipping curves was not recommended. Should have known better. If you clip the curves, the seams may be too weak to take the turning. Thus the possible suggestion?? Will make this pattern again--determine a better way to turn the dress and clip the curves. I'll bet it will look a lot better.
