The back of the dress – which is what attracted me to the pattern – is gorgeous. Pleats give fullness, and the bow is so pretty.
I was a bit worried about the front. The high neckline and short sleeves didn’t look very comfortable, but they are needed because of the low back. Greta seems to like it though, and the only problem is that the dress becomes quite short when she lifts her arms. Leggings or little shorts solve that problem, and I’ve made both for her from this bright pink jersey.
She has worn this with a little denim jacket over the top, and it looked adorable – she’s a stylish girl.
A pattern for a matching doll’s dress is included but that looked far too fiddly to make and play with. Maybe when Greta is older!
