Partytime Sweetheart Dress and Top 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

8 reviews   |  

The Partytime Sweetheart Dress is a great choice for a garden party, wedding, or birthday celebration. The sweetheart neckline provides a feminine flair, and the half puff sleeves add an eye-catching detail. The double row of tucks on the skirt is a lovely detail that helps provide just a bit of pouf to the skirt section. You may choose to leave the skirt section off and make a dainty Partytime Sweetheart Top that works perfectly with a pair of jeans or a separate skirt. This fun design by dKinley designs is best done in cotton woven fabric. It’s perfect for a small floral or calico print. Not recommended for knits. The bodice section is lined. Back closure instructions are given for hook and loop tape, but with the 1/2” seam allowance at the center back, snaps or an invisible zipper could be used if desired.

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

Recommended Fabrics: Lightweight woven cottons or cotton blends. This fun design is best done in cotton woven fabric. It’s perfect for a small floral or calico print. Not recommended for knits.

Party Time Sweetheart Dress and top

I really like this pattern. I have made 4 different dresses from it and have a few more cute out to make. I’m going to try to make an evening dress from it too. Thank you. It’s a great pattern.

DK Designs Partytime Sweetheart Dress and Top

Such a cute sleeve design! It’s totally unique from anything I’ve made before. I’ve made both the dress and the top and they are both top notch designs. The instructions are easy to follow and the fit is excellent. Give this one a try!

Feminine dress

This was a wonderful pattern for sewing up a lovely dress- I knew I would love it because of the sweetheart neckline! Directions and photos for every step along the way made it simple to follow along. I added a touch of lace on the sleeves, hem and waist for an even more feminine and romantic look.
