A Dream Wedding Dressby Little Miss Muffett, for your favorite 18-inch doll. This stunning ensemble includes a beautiful dress which has a Basque-cut Bodice with optional piped Princess seams, a sweetheart neckline and gorgeous Mermaid Sleeves. The low Bodice Back closes with Hook & Loop tape. The semi-circular Skirt has an optional overlay.

The beautiful lined Bolero Jacket has a Mandarin Collar, a Laced Center Back Panel and a Lace Ruffle. Satin Roses adorn the Center Back waist. The Long Sleeves are finished with ribbon and lace.

To complete the outfit, a stunning double layered ¾-length Veil, gathered at the crown and finished with a floral bridal headpiece or tiara.

Included are pretty Lace-edged Panties and a Garter, which are finished with satin ribbon and an optional rosebud.

This relatively easy PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18” soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®.

Fine sewing lesson

Steps are clear from photographs. Text is correctly edited. Photos rival bridal magazines. Designs are filled with precious details such as piping, pearl trim, ribbon roses, lace medallion hem insets, perfect back lacing and lace peplum in the shape of a tiny bustle. The designer uses and explains her technique for getting perfect placement of stretched leg and waist elastic. Value in every feature confirms integrity of pricing. One suggested fabric confounded me, what is “bonded lace?” I finally decided to take some white white curtain lace and iron it onto a scarflike medium bondable interfacing sold by “Plantational” through Amazon. I placed the lace face down on a silicone workmat, layered the interfacing adhesive side down over it and pressed with a “wool” setting. I kept a washcloth infused with iron cleaner nearby and polished the faceplate after each segment, taking care not to push the iron sideways over the interfacing. After completing the mate, I let the new fabric cool completely. I noticed none of the adhesive stuck to the silicone. Only the iron picked up some tacky smears. So how would I buy bonded lace if i didn’t create it? I highly recommend this pattern for the intermediate sewer and I thank Pixie Faire for marketing the best 18” girl doll patterns.

Pretty wedding gown

I made this to surprise my granddaughter. She requested a wedding gown for her doll. I am placing at the bottom of the box of fifty plus garments I made for her for Christmas. The laces on the jacket back, along with the peplum , make it so elegant. The details that are included in Miss Muffet patterns makes them a delight to sew!
