Alexandra 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

  |  

Your 18-inch doll will look adorable in this charming Vintage-style Dress from Little Miss Muffett  which includes an adorable Cummerbund and beautiful Bolero.

Although not historically correct, the designs are based on various examples of Children’s Clothing from the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s.

The sleeveless Dress has a Lined and Ruched front Bodice with a rounded square neckline and which closes at Center Back with Hook & Loop tape.  Deep double lace-edged ruffles are attached to the full gathered and layered Skirts.  An optional ribbon and bow adorns the Lower Skirt just below the Upper Skirt.

The diamond-shaped Cummerbund which closes at Center Back with Hook & Loop tape, has side inserts with ribbon detail for added interest while 3 small buttons adorn the belt at Center Front.

The loose-fitting, lace-edged Bolero has short gathered and ruffled sleeves and closes at Center Front with Ribbon Ties.  Ribbon Roses finish the Bolero front.
