Item details

Hot weather is on its way! How about whipping up a 'Double Take' Reversible Sundress for her favorite 18" doll? She'll enjoy 2 great dresses in one!

The Double Take features a 'V' neckline and ties at the back neck in a halter style. The seamless skirt wraps around into an open scoop back and fastens with an adjustable hook and loop 'Velcro' type tab.

You'll love the simplicity of the Double Take! Only 1/3 yard each of 2 fabrics required, and one main pattern piece! Simple construction methods are perfect for beginning sewists, including youngsters. Quick success is just the ticket to keep them excited about sewing!

The Double Take pattern assumes basic sewing skills but you'll receive detailed instructions and lots of photos. I'll walk you through every step from the planning to the final pressing!

How about 2 full pages of inspirational photos; along with the products, measurements and tips to make them a reality? Add a ruffle to the hemline, eyelet lace to the bodice and waistline, or a purchased applique at the neckline!

Check out the bonus worksheet on adding embellishments! What to buy and how to use it! Tips on basting tape, monofilament nylon thread, correct size and placement of embroidered designs and more.

How about a second bonus? 2 page instructional on adding side seams. Use directional prints, such as stripes, with ease! Enables cutting your Double Take from smaller pieces of fabric. Use up those scraps or try fun color-blocking!

This listing is for a sewing pattern, NOT an actual garment. Photos shown are samples only, and may depict embroidered designs, accessories or hairbows that are not included in the instructions.

Double Take reversible sundresses are designed to fit current American dolls, as well as most other similar 18" dolls. Because of the adjustable waistline, this pattern will fit Pleasant Company brand dolls, too. This pattern also fits the 15" favorite baby doll!

PLEASE NOTE: Look for a separate listing for a matching design to fit slimmer 18-19" dolls, such as the Kidz n Cats brand doll or the Gotz brand 'Hannah'. NEW! Hearts n Squirts size pattern pack with 2 sizes to fit 14" Hearts for Hearts dolls OR 14.5" Wellie Wisher dolls by American Girl brand.

Immediate download is available after purchase. I am happy to answer any questions and can be reached by conversation through my etsy shop.

    I live in a LOW income area. Lots of girls and Dollies. But no money for clothes. These will make great outfits for the girls this Xmas.
