1850's Girls Dress 14.5" Doll Clothes Pattern

3 reviews   |  

Make your own pretty 1850's style dress for 14.5" WellieWishers™ dolls with this Keepers Dolly Duds sewing pattern. The dress features two design options:

View A Bodice: A trimmed edged vest overlay that extends down over the top of the skirting. Add a single ribbon bow to connect the two vest pieces at center front. 

View B Bodice:  Double front trimmed edge panels, overlayed on top of the basic bodice front. This design looks great with a bow accent or without.

Both Variations: Short sleeves were typical early 1850's fashion for young girls and this pattern provides an option for either single or double-layered sleeves. The gown features double skirting with an over-skirt that has a trimmed scalloped shaped hemline. Lace, bias, or piping can be used as edging. The back fastens with three buttons or snaps closures and side ties form a pretty bow at the back.

This is a relatively easy intermediate pattern, by Keepers Dolly Duds, and a great choice for someone with limited sewing experience.

Suggested Fabrics: View A and B Dress in a lightweight fabric such as cotton, linen, or silk. Not suitable for knits.

    • View A and View B Dress ~ 1/2 yard (0.6 m) 45-inch wide fabric
