Pattern Notes

  • Were the instructions clear?: yes
    I didn't really use the instructions since I didn't have access to them at the time I was sewing, but the construction is pretty straight forward if you're used to sewing lined bodices.
  • Were the fabric recommendations correct?: yes
  • Did you make any changes to the pattern?: yes
    I didn't line the flounces and added the pompom trim. I also left off the ties.
  • Did the garment fit well?: no
    It's too big! I made the smallest size available (6 mo) for my 11 mo old. I knew there was a chance this would happen based on the size chart. It's only a little big, though, and should fit by the end of summer.
  • How would you rate this pattern?: 5
