This beautiful dress, by Little Miss Muffett, inspired by the lavender fields of Provincial France, will be a wonderful addition to your doll’s summer wardrobe.
The dress, made from Quilters’ Cotton, has a Bodice with a fitted waistline and a rounded square, scoop neckline in both the Front and Back. An option for a higher neckline has been included. The short gathered sleeves have elastic cuffs with ruffled hems. The semi-circular Over-Skirt, which is open at the side, has a broad gathered ruffle finishing the hem edge. The Petticoat, which is also semi-circular, has a lace hem edge and continues with lace layers which show through the side split of the Over-Skirt. The Petticoat and Over- Skirt are basted together as one at the waist before being attached to the bodice. A fabric bow finishes the apex of the ruffled side split. The dress closes with Hook & Loop Tape in the Back. This easy pattern is designed to fit 18-inch soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®.
Make a matching outfit for little sister with the Provence pattern designed to fit 14.5" dolls such as WellieWishers™.
