Item details

This outfit was inspired by an ensemble that Princess Diana wore in the 1980s: a dropped-waist sailor dress in pale blue with a matching pillbox hat and a white clutch. I named this pattern Wedgwood because of the shade of blue, but of course you can make it any color you like!

I adapted this pattern for a child doll and a 16-inch fashion doll, too, and I have those versions for sale in my shop.

Skill level = easy. (This pattern calls for DMC size 8 perle cotton (for the collar and clutch), which can be difficult to find in your local craft store. A good online source is I've seen it available here on Etsy, too, as well as eBay.)

Only the pattern is for sale; the actual outfit is unavailable. (The doll and accessories are shown only to give you an idea of what can be done after you make the outfit.)

No shipping cost, as you can download the PDF file from Etsy immediately after purchase.

NOTE: If you find a valid mistake in one of my patterns and point it out to me, I will refund the cost of the pattern to you! (Applies only to individual patterns, not collections.) I want to make my patterns as perfect as possible!

Feel free to sell any items you make from my patterns, but please do not resell the patterns themselves or make them available online. They are copyrighted.

I have created many of my own patterns that have been published in various magazines (Crochet World, Quick & Easy Crochet, Barbie Bazaar, and Dollhouse Miniatures). I have had 2 crochet books published: "Twentieth Century Fashion Doll Collection" (2006) and "Playtime Jackets" (2011).
