It was super quick and easy to make. I HAD to make it in Dalmatian fabric because it's got that "big little girl" thing going on. This pattern came out a year too late for me to have a matching pup (RIP Lola 1999-2015). The only complaint I have about this pattern is that it was too short. At 5'7", it came to my knee unhemmed. So as not to lose any inches, I bias-banded the hem. If you're taller like I am, and want that classic 1950s length, add inches to the bottom!
