    I like this pattern a lot because it is very feminine, although it took me several days to finish it, at the end I was very excited with the result. It is a shame I can not get small buttons in Mexico very easily but I keep searching!

    Just finished the skirt version of this pattern, and LOVED it! This is will be an often repeated skirt, as it’s adorable, and I can’t say enough good things about! It was easy, and a delight to look upon! Way to go, Liberty Jane!

    I have a question: Cinnamon, can you recommend some suppliers for doll-sized D-rings (like you’ve used in this pattern), as well as doll-sized cinch buckles? I’d love to create the complete look, but I think I’ve spent more time trolling the internet for resources than I have sewing! Thanks in advance 🙂 (Hint: Maybe a future blog???)

  12. Hmmm! Pick ONE favorite pattern? Can that be done?! 🙂 I will say this one (for this moment) since I love the versatility of making the skirt or the dress. Also because I have the perfect pink cotton for the dress and some sparkly fabric for the skirt!

  13. Emily FourLeafCloverSixZeroNine says:

    I have wanted this pattern since I began to design. Its absolutaly amazing and I want it so bad. I j’adore your amazing patterns and when I got my first, I didn’t get this one, because I thought it would be way too hard for me. Now I really wish i had gotten it because I want it so badly to use!

    Thank you or having a giveaway LJC!:D
