Betsy Ross Shop Dress 18" Doll Clothes

13 reviews   |  

Betsy Ross was an upholsterer and seamstress who is credited with making the most-recognizable early American flag. The "Betsy Ross Shop Dress" is the third sewing pattern in the Flossie Potter "Women of History" series and contains a historical information page on this American folk hero.

The dress is an everyday dress from the late 1700s, which we can envision Betsy wearing as she sewed her iconic flag.

The bodice features a faux front placket with 5 tiny buttons, decorative bodice seaming, a low round neckline with ruffle, and center front waist point. The sleeves end in a point and are pushed up and tied in place so they will be out of the way while Betsy sews.

The skirt portion is gathered along the sides of the waist, as was fashionable in the day.

Combine the Shop Dress with the other two patterns in this set: the "Betsy Ross Flag" and the "Shop Apron & Cap," and your display will be ready for President's Day, Flag Day, or Independence Day. But you'll want to keep it up all year, because this set is really cute!

This 28-page PDF sewing pattern contains 11 pages of full-color illustrated instructions, 8 pages of pattern pieces, and 4 pages of printable summary instructions (to save on printer ink!).

I am so pleased!

I wanted to make a historical dress and didn't have a lot of time. After reading other reviews, I opted to leave off the lining since I didn't have time for errors. I must say I love the result! Don't be tempted to leave off the sleeve ties because they really do make the dress special looking. I do wish there were a few more pictures in the instructions as I rely on pictures when I sew. Thank you for a fun pattern. I'm sure I will be making more of this one.
