1930s Frock 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

12 reviews   |  

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®.
