Complement this pattern with the Tudor Jewelry Pattern to give your dress the final touch.

Reversible Fancy Dress 18" Doll Clothes

I loved the simplicity of the pattern. Not a lot of pieces to cut and sew together I made the dress but not as a reversible. It made three of them in less then 2 hours on New Years day
