As for the pattern, I feel confident that I will use it again. It was quick to put together, and the directions made sense. The tweaks I utilized include the bow. The pattern calls for the bow to be made of the main fabric. I thought this would be too busy, so I used some ribbon from my stash. I also assembled the contrast fabric differently. The directions call for you to sew the front and lining together, the back and lining together, and then join them at the shoulders. I'm not a fan of this technique. Instead I sewed front to back at the shoulders, then stitched the neck opening. I next top-stitched the neck, then pressed the arm openings and top-stitched them together. Easy peasy. I may well have to alter my method if I include sleeves in any future versions.
The most important thing? Sister Goldenhair loves it! Look at those eyes... She is definitely working her Tinkerbelle mischief.
