Prairie Ruffles Dress 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

5 reviews   |  

Create a prairie dress for your 18" doll! This beautifully designed Keepers Dolly Duds doll clothes pattern includes two garments: dress and pinafore, designed to be worn layered together.

  • The pinafore has a scooped neckline and a slightly higher waistline. A small little ruffle wraps the scooped neckline. The front placket sports a row of mini buttons. The pinafore fastens at the back bodice with two buttons.
  • The prairie styled dress has a slightly dropped shoulder silhouette with short gathered banded sleeves with ruffled sleeve cap. The bodice features a double tuck at the center neckline, stand-up collar, and fully gathered skirting with a hemline at mid-calf length. The back fastens in full with buttons up the back and side ties form a pretty bow tie.

It is not frumpy!

I love this pattern. It was fun to make and does not make my doll look dowdy. It even fits my chunky Kirsten.

This is a great pattern, and I was able to create pretty outfit from it. Only one suggestion: when we sew a tube (like the sash ties) and subsequently have to turn it right side out, could you please tell us the best way to do this?
