Endless Summer Halter Dress and Top 18" Doll Clothes

29   |  

Who doesn’t love a flirty sundress? The Endless Summer Halter Dress and Top has so many pretty details: a faux-button front, a gently gathered skirt that can be used with border prints and scalloped eyelet, a high-low bodice, and the extra touch of a racer-style back with graceful ties. As an added bonus, a halter top with three different hem styles can also be made with this pattern. The PDF pattern instructions include easy-to-follow directions for making long ties, a way to make an easy, professional-looking hem for touchy curves, and options for a facing or fully lined bodice. To optimize fit, two sets of cutting lines have been provided to accommodate dolls that like candy, as well as those who prefer salads.

This pattern is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.  It is also available for 14.5" dolls such as WellieWishers™ as well as Gotz® and Kidz N Cats® dolls

magnifique modèle printanier

Très jolie robe facile à coudre car très bien expliquée. Très facile de faire les cordelières avec les explications détaillées. Je ne connaissais pas la méthode et j'ai trouvé super. Avec vos patrons j'apprécie beaucoup de coudre pour mes poupées.

Fun Pattern

This is a well written pattern. I did take out some width in the bodice to make the top more form fitting. Love the length options for a shirt or a dress.

I love all the designs from Forever 18 Inches and this one is no exception! The pattern is an excellent fit and the directions are well written and easily followed. I love the extra tips that are provided, too! I have made the pattern once and expect to make many more dresses and tops! Thank you for such a unique and lovely design!
