Precious Pinafores Dress 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

2 reviews   |  

What could be more precious than a crisp pinafore over a demure little dress? This sweet set, by FROG Princess Fashions includes a puffed-sleeve, round-neck dress sporting a full, gathered skirt with a ruffle designed to peek out below the apron of the pinafore. The bodice is lined to the waist, and the puffed sleeves are banded. The dress may be finished with lace at the neck and sleeve, and with or without the lower skirt ruffle.
The pinafore set features a gathered apron that ties at the back waist with three bib options: a "T" shaped, a "U" shaped, and a "V" shaped bib. The three pinafore bibs have a back-tab closure and may be embellished with lace, rickrack, piping, or machine embroidery* (custom ME files from Frog Princess Fashions). The bib may be worn with or without the apron, and, similarly, the apron may be worn with or without the bib. The pinafores offer multiple options for creating a set of timeless dresses with a 19th century appeal.

Optional embellishment (available separately) - The custom machine embroidery designs for this dress from Frog Princess Fashions offer further customization for a truly unique design.

She was the first African-American child to desegregate the all white William-Frantz Elementary school in in Louisiana on November 14, 1960 “Be a brave” This was the perfect pattern for the dress she wore on the first day A beautiful pattern with many options and very easy

    Dress, pinafore with machine embroidery.

    Dress was well designed and fit with first one completed. Pinafore added makes a beautiful outfit. Machine embroidery on it adds the finishing touch. This is one I will be making more of. Enjoy.
