The Versatility Dress: classically simple, with so many possible looks! Dress it up with fancy material and an elegant sash, or keep it casual with informal fabrics. A lined bodice with princess seams or a plain simplified version can be combined with three different skirt and belt options for a variety of personalized looks.
A bonus tutorial showing how to sew an attached lining with finished seams is also included. If this is a new technique to you, I encourage you to read it first before you begin sewing. I hope it makes a sometimes mysterious process easy to understand and apply. Finally, for those who may be new to sewing, I’ve written the directions comprehensively with many explanatory details and step-by-step photos. If you’re an experienced seamstress, you will probably be able to sew this dress just by reading the written-only instructions included at the back of the pattern. Happy sewing!
The Versatility Dress design is also available for 18" dolls separately.
Suggested Fabrics: Quilter's cotton, lightweight denim, Kona cotton or other similar medium-light to medium-weight natural fabrics. 1/6 yd. of lightweight fabric such as lawn or batiste is needed for the Lining.
