Enjoyed using the pattern - instructions easy to follow, well designed and produced a great result. The child that I gave the jacket to was delighted and her doll Mary Ellen looked very fashionable forward.
I really enjoyed using this pattern. It was easy to follow and the two jackets I made for a customer were well received.
I have found you patterns easy to understand, accurate and well received by grandchild. Thank you!
Love this pattern! Easy to follow directions.
I just completed this jacket and it turned out fabulous, the detail with the top stitching, pockets and flaps really make this jacket look like a miniature version of a full size jacket. The instruction we're very easy to follow and the jacket went together easily even though I hadn't sewn a zipper in a garment for 40 years! Thank You for a great pattern!
