Item details

Sunday Best is a vintage-inspired dress designed to fit A Girl for All Time® Dolls. The dress features a 1950’s style bodice trim that looks charming on dolls from any era. View A and View C have a scalloped edge trim and View B is made from gathered lace. Views A and B have bias tape trim, and directions are given for making your own bias trim or using packaged bias tape. View B is made from an eyelet fabric that has a finished lace edge. The dresses can be embellished with buttons, bows, or purchased appliqué. The full skirt is gathered at the waist, and can be trimmed with a contrasting bias or the scallop trim. Dressmaker “secrets” are included for easy methods to make the scallop trim and buttonholes. The dress fastens down the back with either buttons or Velcro®. Depending on your fabric choices the dress can be dainty and feminine or bold and fun - either look is perfect for your doll when she wants to dress in her “Sunday Best.”

The pattern to make matching shoes is available separately.
