Fifties Favorite is a vintage inspired dress for your 18” doll. What makes this dress special is the bodice treatment. The curved yoke extends into the sleeves, giving it a distinctive 1950’s feel. It can be embellished with hand or machine embroidery, or left plain. The yoke is shown trimmed with lace, but can also be embellished with rick rack or piping. A special easy technique is introduced to get those corners on the bodice sewn perfectly every time. A fun addition to the dress are the fancy patch pockets. They feature a lace-trimmed flap and can be embellished with embroidery. Instructions for the gloves are available in the pattern “Dress It Up” https://www.etsystudio.com/listing/294733123/dress-it-up-american-girl-pdf-sewing?ref=shop_home_active_2
Depending on the fabric and trim choices, this versatile dress can be for special occasions or every day. Dress it up or dress it down; either way it is sure to become a favorite.
