Item details

This feminine little flutter sleeve dress is designed to fit most 18" dolls. The dress features a high yoke, and the bodice is fully lined. The flutter sleeve is lined with a contrasting fabric and utilizes a special technique to bind the edge. Armholes are finished with a contrast bias binding.

The pattern pieces are drawn with a CAD program, and include highly detailed step-by-step instructions with pictures to guide you through. The pattern includes the flower applique as well as panties and the dress.

This pattern is sized to fit dolls with a chest size of 11-12 1/2". Many variations in body size can be accommodated with minor modifications or simply by adjusting the closure placement.

A 21 page pattern in PDF format will be sent to you by instant download after purchase. You must have Adobe Reader to download the file, which is available for free at http://www.adobe.com/products/reader.html It is designed to print on standard 8 -1/2" x 11" paper. The basic pattern itself is not difficult, but some sewing experience is helpful. The pattern includes "tips" for easy construction, which will help many beginner sewers.

This listing is for a PDF version of the pattern available for instant download. You may make dresses to sell from the pattern, but please recognize me as the designer.

Please Note: This is a sewing pattern to make doll clothes, not a finished piece of doll clothing**

This looks like a darling pattern to sew. The pattern is laid out very well. The instructions are very well detailed and arriving by PDF is a favorite by me. Thank you Bonnie.
