Perfect for your doll this summer – this gorgeous, fully reversible halter-neck dress has a fitted wrap bodice and a full gathered skirt. The overlaps of the Bodice are curved to form a pretty sweetheart neckline while the gathered skirt has an extension for added color and a touch of gathered tulle finishes the hem. Each piece is topstitched with contrasting thread if desired. The dress closes with Hook & Loop Tape on the bodice back and the halter strap closes with a snap.
This easy pattern is designed to fit 18” soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®.
