Beth 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

5 reviews   |  

Beth is the second pattern in Keeper's Dolly Duds “Little Women” series. The crowning feature is the fitted sleeves topped with a double-puffed sleeve cap. These caps can be made in matching or contrasting fabric. The bottom edges of the sleeves are finished with a bias cut trim and fasten with a button and button loop. A row of decorative buttons add just enough embellishment to the simple bodice to keep the focus on the sleeves. The Civil War Era silhouette is completed with a full calf-length skirt that is embellished with two rows of tucks and a wide strip of bias trim outlined with lace. The dress closes in back with three buttons, but hook and loop tape or snaps can be used, if preferred. Pair this dress with Keeper's Dolly Duds “Hooded Cloak” for a cozy winter ensemble!

This PDF sewing pattern, by Keepers Dolly Duds, is designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl®.

    KDD Beth

    All of Keepers' patterns are well designed, well instructed and have great fit. This is no exception. This dress has one of the most interesting sleeve details I have seen. Clear instructions make it possible to turn out a beautiful dress like this.

    This pattern is beautiful and I made it using a red gingham cotton fabric. As usual Eve Coleman's pattern are the best.

    Beth

    This is a great pattern full of many intriguing details but not all that difficult if you take you time and follow the well written directions one at a time.

    Beautiful Dress!

    I was an early tester for this pattern, and it is wonderful in every way. There are a lot of details in this dress … the sleeves are just gorgeous! The instructions are very detailed with clear pictures of each step, and I had no trouble working through it. I chose to make this in a Christmas fabric, which probably isn’t appropriate for the time period it represents, but thought it made a very pretty dress!
