Adorable pattern, Can't wait to make it.
I found this an enjoyable pattern to sew, with easy to follow instructions, and photos which clearly showed the instructions. No problem with fit on my fluffy PM's or my custom Lea doll.. I love the curved bodice. I also love gathered skirts, and you can see in my outfit that I feature that - I used Kona-type cotton fabrics for both the dress and shrug and starched the skirt to emphasize the fullness. I added the fruit with Heat and Bond applied appliqués to the skirt and shrug.
This is such a fun and easy pattern to sew. It can be made with so many different fabrics, and will totally change the look. It can be worn with or without the shrug too. The shrug is fully lined, so can be made with woven fabric too. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. I will be making more of these for sure.
It was very quick and easy to stitch out. The directions are great. I enjoyed stitching it out in Halloween prints. :D
