    Two Great Dresses in One Pattern

    This pattern offers two very different dresses in one pattern. I made the short sleeved version this time, but have also made both versions in the 14 1/2” size. I even got brave and made the buttonholes this time … using the template provided, along with the instructions for making freezer paper buttonholes, makes these almost easy! Like all Keepers Dolly Duds patterns, the instructions are well written and easy to follow, and the fit of the dress was perfect.
