While perusing your site, I re-read the sizing information for each doll group. Somehow, I managed to miss the fact that this size could fit Skipper(R) dolls. Since I have four different bodies for this doll, I look forward to testing this out. It also means that I will have to look at the other patterns in this group...
This pattern, Level Up!, is fantastic for the step by step detail that has been provided, as I'm sure others have commented. It encourages those new to the craft and is a great starting point for those who are more experienced and/or creative. I should also mention that I hand sew many of the outfits I've made from your other patterns, despite having a sewing machine, so one need not be discouraged if they don't have a machine at their disposal.
Thank you so much for this; your work is truly appreciated!
