Did you have a problem with the skirt? When I increased on line 6 (every K stitch) I wound up increasing 26 stitches and not 25. Please respond

I felt the directions should have been more detailed and specific, ie: how to put the sweater together, seam wise, and Row 18 of the skirt...???

I felt there was something lacking in the skirt pattern. My did not look anything like your picture. Also, is there supposed to be some kind of closure on the skirt or does it just slide on and off?

Wondering why you are using 3.5 mm needles for worsted weight yarn when it is usually 4.5. I love this design and will be making it for my granddaughter's dolls. Will definitely check the gauge.

I'm not the designer but here's my thoughts about the 3.5mm size needles. This size gives the holiday outfit a heavy winter sweater look. It looks like a bulky sweater would look like on a child/teenager. It also is stiffer and is a big part of giving the skirt it's flare.

I would suggest using sport weight yarn with the 3.5 needle as this looks really heavy and too tight
