Pattern Description:
Simple tank top for dolls.

Pattern Sizing:
18", specifically sized for American Girl, but also fits Our Generation and Maplelea dolls. Probably others as well.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Mostly, yes.
I used a different fabric, but the over-all look is the same.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
YES !
Liberty Jane has the absolute BEST instructions ever.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I prefer a more polished look on the edges, but this looks nice as well.

Fabric Used:
Different types :

Black / silver stretchy fabric
- contrast thread used as I was sewing along side my daughter and wanted her to see how everything looked easily.

Tan material with flowers
- My 8-year old sewed this one on her own.

Old cotton track pants from Old Navy

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The grey tank top, I cut longer and wider for a more 'masculine' look for the boy doll.
Other than that, I followed the directions.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I'll probably make more, with slight variations. The top goes together within minutes, and is SO easy.

Conclusion:
LOVE Liberty Jane patterns
