Bella Rose Ball Gown & Party Dress 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

11 reviews   |  

Here is a dress pattern that truly does it all. Taking your girl from a day at the park or shopping to a grand ballroom. The bodice is the same elegant design and can be dressed up or down with trims and fabric choice.

View A has a sweeping evening length skirt while View B has a gathered skirt attached. Those magnificent tiers are optional. It looks beautiful without tiers in either version, but truly blooms like a rose when topped with such floaty elegance.

Learn the secret method for making this dramatic skirt that is both sleek and full at the same time. This one truly is a Beauty.

Fully illustrated every step of the way, the instructions guide you from the simplest version to the cosplay-like details to make your masterpiece.

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

This does came out cute, but working with the sheer chiffon was challenging. I had a lot of trouble with it fraying, especially after having to redo a couple of things. I will try to do this dress in a pretty lacey eyelet that I recently purchased.

Gorgeous Gown!

I love this pattern very much! Frankly speaking, my first two attempts to make the bodice failed because I'm not an expert seamstress and I started with fancy fabrics right away. After this I took cotton and followed the instructions step-by-step. When I learned the process, the pattern became easy! I already dressed 5 of my dolls in the gowns made by this pattern and plan to use it again and again.

I too was a little intimidated with my first try, however I have now made 2 wedding gowns, two light blue gowns full skirts and flounces and wow so many ways to change this pattern. The second offering of a shorter version I have made 4 with addition of netting slips. Love this pattern!!!!!!!!!
