- What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I LOVE this look!!! The pattern was very easy to put together, and it looks so cute! Fabric used
White shirting, cotton print Pattern alterations or any design changes you made or would recommend
I only had a size 1/2, but it fit my 2 year old pretty well. I only decreased the seam allowance on the skirt and shirt (increasing the width of the other pieces by the amount decreased from the seam allowance). I also added just a little length. I knew she would never leave the suspenders or buttons alone so I left those off. I also opted to do hidden snaps on the bib. Would you sew this pattern again?
Yes Would you recommend this pattern to others?
Yes Any additional comments
Once again, I decided to handsew the hem, sleeves, and understitch the front collar (think I will go back and understitch the whole collar).

The pattern instructs you to purchase a tie, but I had to self-draft my own.
