The Party Like It's 1985 Dress, by FROG Princess Fashions. Dresses of the 1980s were characterized by...
I made this dress for a doll I rescued from an antique shop. She is 16" and very thin. Not really being the doll this pattern was designed for I took a chance but figured I could adjust where I needed to. I didn't adjust anything and it fit perfectly. My only problem is that the sleeves need to be finished before the side seams are sewn in. Doing anything using a "set in" technique for doll clothes can be difficult, especially for people with problem fingers. I also used Velcro to close the back because the doll has very stiff arms and I needed to be able to open the dress completely to get it on her. It worked fine. Overall the dress turned out beautifully and the doll, who really needed something new, looks precious in it. I think I'll make her more of them. So many possibilities for creativity.
