Joni's Uptown Dress 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

3 reviews   |  

Joni's Uptown Dress is the Flossie Potter version of a vintage dress 1950's pattern for girls. The bodice has two front darts, a round collar, and 3/4 sleeves with cuffs. The cuffs are in a permanent fold and have a v-cut on the outside that exposes two decorative buttons. A decorative vertical placket and four decorative buttons adorn one side of the full skirt, and it has a stripe motif in two directions to add interest. The pattern also has a bonus petticoat.

This PDF sewing pattern has 9 pages of step-by-step instructions with full-color photo illustrations, 4 pages of summary instructions (to save on printer ink!), and 7 pages of pattern pieces.

Pair this dress with the Little '50s Swing Coat for those chilly fall days!

This pattern is also available for 14.5" dolls such as WellieWishers.
