Bernadette's Dress 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

3 reviews   |  

Bernadette's Dress, by Flossie Potter, is a sweet classic A-Line with a sailor collar and tie, decorative front buttons, two length options, and three sleeve styles designed to fit 18-inch dolls such as American Girl®. The dress ties in back with a sash.

With its innovative assembly procedure, Bernadette's dress will sew up in a breeze. And if you don't have a turning tool, the instructions show you a new way to turn the sash and tie. The 43-page INTERMEDIATE Level PDF sewing pattern gives you 23 pages of step-by-step instructions with full-color photos, 7 pages of summary instructions (to save on printer ink!), and 9 pages of pattern pieces.

It's an Anytime Dress that your dolls will enjoy all year!

Bernadette's dress

I really like this style. I've made it twice, but I had a little trouble with the collar trim and bow both times. I think I'll try again--I like the dress so much, I think I just have to believe the directions instead of my intuition!

Bernadette's sunny dress

I really like this style, But even doing it a second time, I was a bit confused about the collar trim and the bow. Nevertheless, I will probably give it another go, because Ii think it's so worth it. Caution--make sure you keep your seam allowances at 1/4 inch! I tend to get my seam allowances a bit over that, and it was a tight fit!

Pretty dress with awesome details!

This pattern sews up much quicker than you expect from looking at the finished dress! The instructions clearly show you all the short-cuts and tips you need to make a beautiful dress that your doll will love to wear!
