Heirloom Baby Dress Set 8" Baby Doll Clothes Knitting Pattern

3 reviews   |  

A complete five piece set for that special day.

  • There are 2 options for the dresses, one a long dress with long sleeves and the other a shorter dress with batwing sleeves. A butterfly lace stitch is used for the skirt section and stockinette stitch for the bodice. Both sets are knit flat from the hem upwards with a back buttoned closure. The sleeves are knitted separately and are joined at the bodice.
  • The bonnet has a frilly brim with an eyelet row to draw a ribbon through to secure the bonnet on the dolls head.
  • The diaper is knit flat with 2 buttons on the front waist to secure it.
  • Finish off the set with a pair of quick and easy booties.
