i love the video cute top

doobug321 4953790

Sorry, I can't even begin. Is there a video? It says video, but it's not there. I can't understand the instructions from step two, I am afraid. Confused. Thanks for any help.

Here is a link to a picture of my top and some pants I made. It came out a little crooked, but not a bad first effort, made from an old tablecloth!: http://pinterest.com/pin/56224695320770701/

The pattern didn't print right but I was able to approximate it. The biggest criticism I have is you didn't explain how to topstitch the sleeves. Being reversible, I had no idea how to do that. So I have a very nice top that I can't quite finish. Will search the web for a solution.

In her video she said the pattern fits on an 8x11 1/2 size of paper. Any luck to making it fit on the doll?
