This crisscross bodice dress is fun and relatively quick to make. It requires intermediate sewing skills. It features bodice ruffles, a waistline inset, and a gathered skirt with ruffle around the bottom. Dress closes in back with velcro. This is a versatile pattern and can be made with contrasting ruffles and from a variety of fabrics. This pattern has a nice snug fit around the armholes. It fits American Girl, Life of Faith, Madame Alexander, and similar 18 inch dolls. It is especially nice for Kit, Ruthie, Molly, Josefina, and Kanani dolls. Pattern includes detailed instructions and photos. Does not include cutting layout suggestions. Three pages of pattern pieces are included.
This is a sewing pattern, not a finished dress.
This pattern is in the form of a PDF file. It can be downloaded upon purchase. You must have Adobe Reader to open it on your computer, and you will need to print out the instructions and pattern pieces. IMPORTANT: Do not "fit to page" while printing. Do not reduce or enlarge pattern pieces when printing them.
