Dress your doll like a little lady is this elegant dress. You can add elegance by playing with eyelet fabric, lace and ribbon trims. The skirt consists of two gathered layers and the bodice is fully lined. Use different shades of fabric for different looks. Two lengths are shown in this PDF sewing pattern, floor and tea length, and a hoop-and-loop closure is used in the back. The dress can also be made with short sleeves or sleeveless.
This pattern is designed to fit 14.5 inch dolls such as WellieWishers™. It is not recommended for Hearts for Hearts Girls dolls as it fits quite loose in the bodice and armhole.
Look for the companion pattern at Pixie Faire for 18" dolls such as American Girl®.
