Charm School Dress 14.5" Doll Clothes Pattern

  |  

The Charm School Dress is not only suited to a charm school class, but is perfect for an afternoon tea, a birthday party, and much more.
With three collar options and two hem lengths, and puffed banded sleeves or gathered un-banded sleeve options, this adorable dress offers multiple looks for your 14”-14.5” dolls’ many social engagements!
Stitch it up in a solid cotton with lace, rick-rack, or soutache trim, or try a soft cotton print and coordinate the collar, cuffs, and hem band with a companion fabric for a darling effect.
You can accent the (mock) front opening with little buttons for a sweet double-breasted look, or add a little ribbon at the center of the collar.
Directions for making a fabric rose, a fancy ribbon bow, and an ascot for embellishment as well as a darling bow-tied headband are included as a bonus! And don’t forget the Frog Princess Fashions machine embroidery embellishments for this dress available from Pixie Faire!
This little dress fits equally well on the 14” Glitter Girls™ and Hearts for Hearts Girls™ dolls, too.

This pattern also comes sized to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.
