Sailor Collar Dress

Although this pattern lists it as a 70’s dress, I thought it was right on target for modern dresses since most of them have a 70’s flair. The collar on this dress is certainly the main feature of this dress and is is just perfect in size and look. The princess seams if the dress give it a nice fit overall. I’d recommend this Dress not only for your 70’s Doll, but also for your stylish modern doll.
