This beautiful dress, inspired by the lavender fields of Provincial France, will be a wonderful addition to your doll’s summer wardrobe.
The dress, made from Quilters’ Cotton, has a Bodice with a fitted waistline and a rounded square, scoop neckline in both the Front and Back. An option for a higher neckline has been included. The short gathered sleeves have elastic cuffs with ruffled hems. The semi-circular Over-Skirt, which is open at the side, has a broad gathered ruffle finishing the hem edge. The Petticoat, which is also semi-circular, has a lace hem edge and continues with lace layers which show through the side split of the Over-Skirt. The Petticoat and Over- Skirt are basted together as one at the waist before being attached to the bodice. A fabric bow finishes the apex of the ruffled side split. The dress closes with Hook & Loop Tape in the Back. This easy pattern is designed to fit 18-inch soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®.
Make a matching outfit for little sister with the Provence pattern designed to fit 14.5" dolls such as WellieWishers™.

Love the pattern it is modern and cute. Love the ruffles!!!
I did more than one of these outfits. Had no problems with pattern. Fits perfectly everywhere. Looks great on AG girl, and on my SA girl and ever on Our Generation girl which ha e broader shoulders. Did the one for WW too. Gorgious. Did while dress without fitting once and fitted perfect. Thanks LMM for these patterns.
Very well explained in detail, but for some reason it was to tight and did not overlap in the back opening. I made the velcro extend beyond the back opening so was able to have both back seams butt up to each other. This dress is sooooo adorable! The Halter Sun-Dress pattern fit perfectly. I love her patterns!
