Butterfly Kisses 18" Doll Clothes

This gorgeous high-waisted little dress in two lengths, has a ruffled scoop neckline, accent color on the shoulders and the hem ruffle, which comes up at the side, is finished with a bow. Appliquéd butterflies are placed randomly on the dress for extra pizazz. The Dress is made from Quilter’s Cotton, the Bodice is lined and closes with Velcro in back. The skirt is cut as one piece and with clever fabric and pattern placement, the side split can be either on the left or right side of the dress. This is a great way to use up those tiny scraps – combine lightweight denim with lace; strong contrasts with bright vibrant colors; soft pastels with florals – anything goes. This easy PDF pattern is designed to fit 18” soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®.
