Just for Fun Halter Dress or Apron 18" Doll Clothes

1 review   |  

Just for Fun, create a sweet sunshine weather halter dress or a cute little cooking apron for your favorite 18" doll such as American Girl®.

Both have the same basic design with wide, curved neck straps that close in back with a functioning or decorative button (with hidden snap or hook-and-loop tape). The dress closes with three functioning or decorative buttons, and the apron closes with narrow ties. The apron's hem can be plain, have lace trim, or a ruffle. Make it your own with or without the gathered pocket with top flounce sitting at a jaunty angle on both the dress or apron; add optional small bias trim or Rick-rack and bows. There are so many ways to customize, just for fun!

This 20-page, intermediate-level PDF sewing pattern contains 11 pages of instruction with full-color photo assembly illustrations, 3 pages of summary instructions (to save on printer ink!), and 3 pages of full-size pattern pieces.
