New Girl Dress for AGAT Dolls

1 review   |  

The Melody Valerie Couture new girl PDF dress pattern designed, specifically for 16 inch A Girl For All Time® dolls, is our take on the quandary of the new girl. It’s demure, a little old-fashioned – but it offers fabulous design possibilities, like the flame appliques on the skirt, the three small mismatched buttons marching down the front, and the little bits of topstitching that waltz across the dress. This lined dress has darted raglan sleeves, dramatic appliques on the skirt, just the right amount of contrast on the fully lined bodice. It closes up the back with invisible zipper and features bias facings on the sleeves.  It is designed to be made from  rayon, wool flannel, lightweight suiting material, or lightweight sateen fabrics. Standard poly or rayon blend lining; sheer or lightweight accents.

Supplies Needed:
-1/4 yard of woven cotton fabric for dress
-Scraps of fabric for lining and contrast pieces
-Three buttons 1/4" or smaller
-One 7-9″ invisible zipper

Skill Level: Intermediate. Skills taught include: hand-hemming, understitching, armscye binding, and installing an invisible zipper.

Wonderful Dress

I made this dress for a doll I rescued from an antique shop. She is 16" and very thin. Not really being the doll this pattern was designed for I took a chance but figured I could adjust where I needed to. I didn't adjust anything and it fit perfectly. My only problem is that the sleeves need to be finished before the side seams are sewn in. Doing anything using a "set in" technique for doll clothes can be difficult, especially for people with problem fingers. I also used Velcro to close the back because the doll has very stiff arms and I needed to be able to open the dress completely to get it on her. It worked fine. Overall the dress turned out beautifully and the doll, who really needed something new, looks precious in it. I think I'll make her more of them. So many possibilities for creativity.
