1960's Contrasting Bands School Dress 14-14.5" Doll Clothes Pattern

1   |  

As a girl growing up in the early 60’s I lived in dresses and skirts. But as a girl living in the country with almost all boys to play with, it was nothing to climb 40 foot cedar and fir trees, jump on a horse (bareback of course) and wade through the creeks catching crawdads in those dresses. I was such a tomboy and all my clothes took a beating. I was always tearing out the waistbands and arms of my dresses. This is a 1960's influenced school dress that my mother made for me and my sisters. With a slightly dropped contrasting waist and skirt bands and slightly gathered tulip sleeves it was designed for a tom girl like myself the freedom of movement while making it easy for my mom to fix any torn out waistbands.

Darling 60's school dress

It was a pleasure to test this really sweet 60's back to school dress. Instructions are very clear and the dress goes together perfect & looks so cute on the 14.5" dolls.
