1940's Panel Dress 18" Doll Clothes


Create a historical panel dress from the 40's  with this PDF pattern.  The dress is lined (with the exception of the sleeves) and the back closes down the back with 5 snaps (if desired, it can also be closed up with velcro) and bias cut ties. It is made up of 5 panels in the front and four in the back to create a fitted look up top and a flared look at the bottom. This dress has a high yoke and square cut neckline. The neckline, hemline, and sleeve bands may be embellished with lace. Two tiny buttons are sewn onto the center front yoke of the dress.
