I bought this pattern to see of I would like it for the girls Christmas dresses. I made a sample one for Brooklyn and I think the pattern turned out adorable! The little jacket was made with out a pattern! Not to shabby. I think for Christmas I might just buy them cardigans. Now that I have a pattern I really like I just need to get some fabric and get to working! I want them to wear their Christmas dress for our church party in two weeks!
