This Regency little girl's dress and drawers pattern is styled for the AG Caroline doll.

The basic dress has an empire style waist. The pink dress waistline is trimmed with a decorative ribbon. The flowered dress has a satin ribbon tied around the waistline. The bodice neckline is higher cut than a ladies dress and is rounded in front and back. The neckline is trimmed with a fabric ruffle. The bodice closes with hook and loop fastener at the center back, but you can substitute buttons and buttonholes or snaps.

Sleeves are cut just below the elbows. They gather slightly at the top and have a ruffle trim at each cuff. Satin ribbon trim may be added above the ruffle as shown with the pink dress.

Two skirt options are included. The dress skirt shown with the pink dress has 2 growth pleats at the knee level and a satin ribbon trim above them. The second dress skirt shown with the flowered print has an added solid fabric border at the hem. These 2 options were typical ways a young girl's dress would be lengthened as she grew. Both dresses finish with a roll hem on the skirt. Bodices are fully lined, but you can choose to finish the neck with a bias facing instead of the linings.

Open crotch drawers go underneath this cute little dress. They are designed from a pattern of the early 1800's. They are easy to sew and include a waistband that closes in the back with a snap, but you could sew a buttonhole and a button for an authentic garment. They can easily be sewn without the open crotch if you prefer to do so. The legs are trimmed with eyelet or narrow lace.

Prints on 8 1/2" by 11" paper.
