A Dream Wedding Dressby Little Miss Muffett, for your favorite 18-inch doll. This stunning ensemble includes a beautiful dress which has a Basque-cut Bodice with optional piped Princess seams, a sweetheart neckline and gorgeous Mermaid Sleeves. The low Bodice Back closes with Hook & Loop tape. The semi-circular Skirt has an optional overlay.

The beautiful lined Bolero Jacket has a Mandarin Collar, a Laced Center Back Panel and a Lace Ruffle. Satin Roses adorn the Center Back waist. The Long Sleeves are finished with ribbon and lace.

To complete the outfit, a stunning double layered ¾-length Veil, gathered at the crown and finished with a floral bridal headpiece or tiara.

Included are pretty Lace-edged Panties and a Garter, which are finished with satin ribbon and an optional rosebud.

This relatively easy PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18” soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®.

Suggested fabrics: Fabric Used: For Dress A, I used Bridal Satin and Voile for the Skirt and Bonded Lace for the Bodice. For Dress B and the Panties, I used Bonded Lace. Bridal Satin was used for the Jacket and Galloon Lace used for the Back Ruffle. Sparkle Veiling was used for the Mermaid Sleeves and fine Illusion Tulle was used for the Veils. The Bridesmaid’s Dress (C), was made using Rosette Lace for the Bodice and Satin for the Skirt. Fine tulle was used for the Mermaid Sleeves. Satin Ribbon, Nylon Lace, Beads and Satin Flowers were used for trimming. Note: Stable Knits and Woven Fabrics are both suitable for the Dress.

I haven't started yet. My only comment is that it requires a lot of different materials and was very expensive to compile all of them.
