This pattern brings back memories of my childhood when my mother would read to me from a big book of fairy tales. I wanted an outfit like this and she made one for me. This pattern is an accurate replica of the one that I had as a child.
It consists of a dirndl, guimpe, apron and, of course, a cape. The cape is fully lined and drapes beautifully. The waist of the dirndl is shown three ways: plain, with buttons and chain and with eyelets and lace. Any little girl will love this outfit for her doll.
This pattern may not be for the beginner as there are no drawings in the instructions; only well-written directions and the usual pattern pieces.. If you have the assistance of an experienced seamstress, you will probably be successful.
I have a background in design, dressmaking and tailoring. When my little granddaughter, Sydney, asked for a doll that was 'easy to dress', I pulled out an American Girl catalogue, she selected Kirstin, and I was off and running. So a few years and many patterns later, here I am anxious to share my wares with you.
This pattern is a winner and brings a great deal of joy!
