This PDF sewing pattern is just what you need to create a sweet vintage look for your doll this spring! It features a slightly dropped waistline, gathered elastic cap sleeves, a waistband that can be embellished with pretty felt flowers and faux pearls and to top it all off....an adorable BONUS cloche hat! This pattern is meant to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl, Our Generation or Madame Alexander.

Material required:

* 5” long piece of Velcro approx ½ ” wide

½ yard for main
¼ yard for lining
¼ yard for cloche hat
*Remnant of medium weight fusible interfacing for cloche hat brim

    Not done making it yet, but I am teaching my 11 year old daughter and her friend to sew using this pattern. So far done with the bodice & they are doing great. Wonderfully detailed instructions for a beginner.
