She scampered out to the gazebo, still wearing her favorite frock -- this quiet, sunny afternoon was hers to do with as she pleased, and she was determined to dive into that new book. Hours later her mother found her, tucked among the bluebells.
Bluebelle is a beautiful dress with elements that hearken back to the flower it was named for. The scalloped hem, the curved multi-piece collar, the petal sleeves, and the tiny mother-of-pearl buttons all echo the bluebell's distinctive swoops and curves. The Melody Valerie bow graces the back of the dress -- a mark of our approval!
Inside, the dress doesn't disappoint. The bodice is fully lined, the armhole seams are neatly bound with self-fabric, and, to avoid velcro damage to either your doll or the dress, it fastens smartly with snaps.
This PDF dress pattern works well with two similar-weight fabrics in harmonizing colors. This example uses cotton shirting, but any lightweight cotton or linen would also work well.
-1/4 yard of main fabric
-1/4yard contrast fabric
-7 size 4/0 snaps, and 7 1/4" wide buttons
