Inspired by the playful pinafore, the Aster Dress by BuzzinBea, embodies vintage flair and classic style together. It has a fully lined bodice with ruffles along the princess seams that run from the front to the back giving it a more fitted look. It features a square neckline, wide waistband and gathered skirt.
View A features ruffles on both the bodice and armholes. View B has trim on the bodice ruffles and skirt. However, the possibilities are not limited to these, there are tons of creative options to mixing and matching certain details to create your own unique and special dress for your 18-inch dolls. It’s so versatile and definitely fun to sew.
