Here's my latest in my 1890 series. Each one with which I come up becomes one of my favorites and this one is no exception.
My inspiration was a sketch that caught my eye in an old catalogue. The dress is shown in three versions. With the advent of the three different sleeves, collars and two skirts/bodices, you can make more than 18 different dresses! If you can come up with more, let me know.
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.
You'll love making this pattern, it's so darn cute.

This is so cute! Pattern arrived quickly. The pattern is well written and I look forward to working with it. Thank you!
