The Volant Dress 18 inch doll dress

The. Dress came out looking great, but the skirt is not long enough for a hem. If I hem it now I am. going to have to add fabric to the bottom or it will be to short. I will fix the pattern for a hem because the dress is so. Pretty.


The Volant Dress

This dress is so cute. I was able to sew it in one day because the directions were easy to understand. You won't be disappointed!


Volant Dress

Great little dress that can look casual or dressy depending of fabric used. Loved how easy it was to put together with clear directions.
