What was your inspiration?
I dressed this doll as part of a holiday project to give dolls to underprivileged children in my local community.

What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This dress is not recommended if you're a novice. the pattern itself is wonderful, the directions had missing steps and some unclear instructions. For an intermediate or above, it can be easily constructed using the pattern and your own knowledge of garment construction.
