Make your own 1930s styled dresses with this classic Keepers Dolly Duds pattern. These cute little 1930s inspired frocks will not only be a very pretty addition to your doll's historical wardrobe, but their timeless appeal will also find a place in their modern wardrobe! View A features a scalloped collar, scalloped bodice overlay, and lightly puffed short scalloped sleeves trimmed with tiny rick-rack and bows. View B has a geometrical style that features a pointed collar, pointed bodice overlay, and lightly puffed short pointed sleeves trimmed with tiny buttons. Both dresses feature knee-length skirting and fasten in the back with five buttons (snaps or hook-and-loop tape can be used if preferred). Side ties form a pretty bow tie in the back of each dress which allows for some adjustment for fitting dolls with varying waistlines. As an added bonus, this pattern now includes four additional collar options!
This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.

Another of my favorite patterns from Keepers Dolly Duds. The pattern is so well designed and detailed in the instructions that the result is beautiful. The instructions also contain suggestions on easy ways to turn out piping for the bows, which makes sewing up so much easier. I was really pleased with the overlay effect on the bodice and the suggestions for trim which all add up to make a lovely design.
J'ai trouvé votre site par hasard. C'est ma fille qui m'a traduit et expliqué votre façon d'envoyer les patrons par mail. J'ai décidé d'en acheter un pour ma mère âgée de 86 ans (française). On lui a un peu traduit en français, mais pas le texte des pièces du patron. D'un coup d’œil, elle a flashé sur le modèle et à priori, tout compris. Elle a adoré ce modèle de robe. Je compte bien revenir acheter d'autres modèles. Beaucoup de classe, super jolis et pour leur prix. ------------------------------------------- I found your site by chance. It was my daughter who translated and explained to me how you send the patterns by email. I decided to buy one for my 86 year old mother (French). We translated a little in French for her, but not the text of the pattern pieces. At a glance, she fell in love with the pattern and a priori, all understood. She loved this dress model. I plan to come back and buy other patterns. A lot of class, super pretty, and for their price.
Love the pattern but haven't made the dress yet.
Love this pattern. Fits very well and instructions are easy to follow. Very pretty dress and will for sure be making more of these
