The pattern was easy to cut out. Instructions were methodical and clearly written. Sewing was, for the most part, easy. But be sure when you trim the points not to trim too close, and be careful when turning the points out not to poke a hole in the end. I think her advice to put a dab of fray check at the end of each point is a good idea. I wish I had followed it. But the outfit is very cute!
I had the privilege of being a pattern tester for this pattern and I loved it! The end result was adorable and the whole pattern went together fairly quickly. There are so many options and ways to make the elf pattern your own! I really recommend getting the tiny jingle bells to add to the hat and collar because it's such a great play feature with the costume!
