I used some organic knit by Birch Fabrics that I found in Santa Cruz last month. This probably took just about a yard. I have no complaints about the fabric. It isn't flimsy, didn't stretch while sewing, and didn't roll back up on itself! I am looking forward to making more with Birch Fabric knits. (Their store is about a 4 hour drive from us, hoping to visit some day soon!)
I made a 3T/4T after comparing measurements. This sounded a little small for Miss H, but it is actually just a bit roomy. I am hoping to make a few more in this size for this fall and winter.
The sewing went pretty quickly, but could be oh so fast with a working serger! I ended up zig zagging all my seams after stitching the pieces together to get a more finished look. I'm glad I did it. I attempted a double needle hem on the dress skirt, but either I didn't read enough about using double needles, or my machine just wasn't made for them. I didn't have any issues with the pattern pieces or instructions, other than a few typos that I'm surprised haven't been fixed by now
