This dress, by BuzzinBea, features a V-neckline with choker accent. It has long sleeves, neckline facing and tiered skirt.
The fun in this dress is all in the sewn-in choker accent, which is very easy to make. Whether you use the same fabric or opt for contrasting material and even add a piece of charm to turn it into a real accessory, the choker will always be the star of this dress. The high-waisted bodice with tiered skirt make it a light and airy style that can easily be a summer or fall wardrobe just by simply changing the length of the sleeves. So simple, yet chic with a bit of boho charm to it, your 18-inch doll will definitely look cute in this outfit.

I love this pattern! I did make some minor adjustments to mine. I omitted the choker and one of the skirt tiers. I honestly love it with or without my changes but I was going for a particular look. I also fully lined the bodice rather than doing a facing but that is just my own preference. The pattern was very easy to follow, the directions clear and the dresses turned out so cute! Thank you! I will be buying more from this designer as I love her style.
