1930's Vintage Dress 18" Doll

This is a great pattern, very easy to cut out and sew up. I did put in three very tiny stitches under the collar to the dress to get it to lay completely flat. Next time I will trim the sides off just about 1/2" so it does not flare as much. I'm happy with the final product, however. It is a surprise for my mom, and will be on her Kit doll soon.

Great pattern

This is a great pattern that is quick and easy to make. I have used it to make many different dresses and it is a staple of my pattern collection. I highly recommend it.

Sweet dress for any time period

I really love this pattern, but have notes on my hardcopy to remind me that the sleeve was drafted wrong. You really need to add width to it as it is almost impossible to fit into the armseye otherwise. Even if you do sew it in as is, then the fit is terrible. It's a really adorable style, so it is a shame this problem hasn't been corrected and the pattern, or at least that piece reissued to all who have purchased the pattern. I would have given the pattern five stars if not for this problem.


Great little pattern!

I've made 3 dresses with this pattern (one without the collar), and I just love it. I do advise cutting the sleeves just a little bit bigger on the sides (not much, just 2mm on each side maybe), since it can be a tight fit. I highly recommend this pattern. One of the neat things about it is that you can get a whole dress from a fat quarter, so if you pick up a pretty little fat quarter somewhere, this pattern is perfect.
