Traditional Native Dress 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

1 review   |  

Simple and practical best describe the Traditional Native Dress. This dress is my interpretation of the type of dress a young Native girl would wear to do her chores or to run and play. A slightly fitted, a-line style that can we worn with or without a belt. Dress it up or dress it down depending on the material you choose and the trim you use. Leave it plain or sew on rows of ribbon for everyday. Add a necklace or some beadwork around the neck for a dressy look.
This is a user friendly pattern with step-by-step instructions and lots of pictures. It's such an easy pattern you'll want to make a few of these dresses so your doll will be ready for any occasion.

This pattern is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.
