“After completing Rosie’s Doll Clothes Course and several other of her patterns, I was ready for the next challenge. I was determined to give this pattern a try. Rosie’s clear video instructions taught me how to make and attach a collar, how to attach sleeves, and how to hem a circular skirt—all new techniques for me. Rosie even gave me the confidence to add lace trim to the sleeves and collar on my own. It turned out beautifully and is a perfect dress for my 50 year-old doll!”
