What are you most proud of? That I kept trying until I got the tensions right.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Cut extra length for the ruffles. Gather the length you need and then cut the ends to match the pattern pieces. Too much time was spent adjusting the cut out fabric to the "base" requirements. Look for fabric on sale!

I've had this pattern for a long time but have never made it. You did a great job and thanks for your tips. I think I'll finally give it a try for my 4 year old grand daughter.

What did you use as a pattern?

I used a Kwik Sew Pattern. It said it had the seam allowance included but it did not for the "skirt panels" but it did not. I did not build the box to hold up the roof. I bought a 99cent basket at my supermarket. It was light weight and worked just fine.
