Downtown 1920s Dress and Hat 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

2   |  

Create this jazzy 1920s style dropped waist dress and hat ensemble with this beautifully designed Keepers Dolly Duds doll clothes pattern. This classic style is sure to enhance your doll's wardrobe!

The dress features dropped waist dress with a separate scalloped bodice overlay that gives it added dimension. Contrasting piping and collar and rows of matching buttons add both texture and color to the otherwise simple design. The contrasting color in the skirting box pleats echo the color and texture of the bodice details. The long sleeves fasten have plackets and cuffs that fasten at the wrist. A full length back opening fastens in back with four buttons and ties that make a neat bow.

A Classic 1920s Cloche completes the look. Easy to make, this unlined hat has a gracefully shaped brim that frames the face and is adorned with a simple art deco style bow that can be made with matching or contrasting fabric.

This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.

Downtown 1920’s

Too cute! Easy to see with clear instructions. I made piping for the edge on the overlay. Still looking for fabric to make the hat.
