Get two fresh looks for your Kidz n Cats Doll or other slim 18” dolls - one for regular school days and one for picture day!
View A - Perfect for picture day at school, this dress has a sweet pin-tuck yoke with a peter pan collar. The puff sleeves are gathered onto a sleeve band edged with lace. The full skirt has two tiers.
View B - This dress can be made in many variations, for wearing any day of the week. It has a “bib” edged with trim, accented with a peter pan collar. The puff sleeves are gathered with elastic and the skirt is edged with a contrasting band.
The PDF pattern includes instructions for two construction options - one to make your dresses “Fast and Easy” and the other to make it “Heirloom” quality. Both go together easily, and will look exactly the same on the outside. The difference is on the INSIDE. If you want to create a dress for play dolls, use the “Fast and Easy” instructions. If you want to create a dress that collectors will treasure, use the “Heirloom” instructions.
The Heirloom Construction features a lined bodice finished with lace. The bodice lining is hand-stitched to the sleeve seam, and the back is finished with buttonholes or snaps.
The Fast and Easy Construction dress goes together much more quickly. The bodice is lined, but the finished seams are exposed. The back closes with Velcro.
