Fabric used: not very much at all :) I love a cute pattern where I can get away with about a 1/2yd and a FQ ! The main print is joel dewberry and the solid is plain broadcloth
Time: I found the top to be a fast sew - especially for a lined shirt. About 2hours I would say.
Pattern: I found it well written and easy to follow, Step by step photos all throughout. (side note: I LOVE having PDF patterns for a few reasons but a main one is easy directions and more tutorial like directions).
I love the peplum look! and I think this pattern is perfect for a kid without being too grown up. there is a dress option to this pattern as well, I think if I was to do the dress I would shorten it up a bit to be more girly vs. knee length.
I thought the curved bodice top might be a bit tricky but it was a breeze. Even installing the zipper went easily!
Sizing: I made a 3T for my girl, the fit is great and it hits about the natural waist where peplum should.
Would I make this pattern again: Yes! Another top I want to make more of! and it goes from a size 1 up to size 8 as well!
I am thinking my next version might have a sheerer fabric as the top piece though and lengthening that peplum a bit and adding a circle skirt...
