Product Review (submitted on May 13, 2018):
I whipped up a minions skating costume for my daughter using stretch Polartec fabric in a couple of afternoons. It went together really easy and fits well. She's happy, warm and very, very cute in it.

I have made the Jalie dress with the large keyhole back previously which has the same neck closing so was able to breeze through the otherwise slightly confusing instructions for the neck. There are quite a few pattern pieces but its all very logical to assemble otherwise.

I did find that the hook and eyes did keep coming open on the neck as the fabric was very stretchy and there was some growing room in the dress. I switched them for some buttons and loops which worked much better and are even more minion-like.
Oh, the hook and eyes weren't listed on the notions, so an extra trip to the shops ensued.
