Pattern Notes

  • Were the instructions clear?: yes
  • Were the fabric recommendations correct?: yes
  • Did you make any changes to the pattern?: yes
    Lots. I shortened it into a dress. I made it in knit with a neckband and no back closure. I shortened the back upper bodice to make a waistband that wrapped all the way around. I cut my skirt pieces 2x the width of the bodice and then gathered them. My daughter wears a 5 or 6 but because I was using knit I sized down to a 2T.
  • Did the garment fit well?: yes
  • How would you rate this pattern?: 5
