Soft and feminine, and oh so romantic. This beautiful dress or top is made from cotton knit with touches of lace and has three sleeve variations. The delicate lace bodice is enhanced by the front and side lace inserts, lace edge trim and pretty bows. Dress it up with an elegant necklace, be dashing with boots and hat, or carefree and casual with leggings and pretty sandals. This relatively easy PDF pattern is designed to fit 18” soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®.
