A Regal Celebration 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

5 reviews   |  

This is a luxuriously sculpted design that is easy to sew. With one foot in modern fashion & one foot in the past, you will enjoy the unique details that set this dress apart. Featuring length options and specialized pieces for sewing with woven or knit fabrics, A Regal Celebration, by Dollhouse Designs, is sure to please the movie and fashion fans in your life. The gown has a very dramatic open overskirt that sweeps to the back in delicate pleats. It can be made floor length or extra-long. The bodice features a very wide-set squared neckline, slim pointed sleeves, and a lapped asymmetrical front. It features gracefully curving edges and is gently shaped with darts. The skirt is slightly flared and flows into a trained back. This deluxe pattern includes instructions for several seam finishes for neckline & hems: a simple facing, lace edging, binding, piping, and fold-over elastic that are all easy to follow. High quality photos & illustrations will guide you through each step of construction.

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