This dress can be made in two different lengths: floor length and below the knee. Depending on the fabrics used, it can be a formal evening dress, wedding dress, prom dress or a casual summer dress. A faster non-reversible option is also included which will also include instructions on how to turn it into a Ruched Dress.
This pattern is a must-have for any doll lover.
Complement this pattern with the Tudor Jewelry Pattern to give your dress the final touch.

To create a Wedding theme, complement with the Riding Jacket/Tuxedo pattern for your boy doll.

Wonderful pattern

The PDF download was seamless. I made this reversible dress for my 7 year old Granddaughter for her American Girl doll. She was thrilled with it! She even dressed her doll in that dress for her birthday party which was a tea party at the American Girl Store!

Reversible fancy dress

The dress turned out beautiful, I didn’t make it reversible, and widen the sleeves , so they could pull over the shoulder , the pattern fit very good and instructions easy to follow Sharon Koethler

Gorgeous Results

I used the pattern for both long, short, reversible and not reversible dresses and they turned out beautifully. I suggest hand sewing the reversible versions from inside the bodices at the waistline of the skirt gathers for the best results. The dresses look elegant and regal.
