Alice Springs Dress 18” Doll Clothes Pattern

4 reviews   |  

Outback Libby: Alice Springs is the newest addition to the collection from Liberty Jane. A casual style dress with feminine flair, wear it in the spring and summer months with sandals and a cute tote, or layer it in the fall with boots and a cardigan. The possibilities are endless! 

The doll clothes pattern features one dress design with a empire waist bodice, V shaped spliced neckline with layered placard, and a mandarin style collar. The design can be made with two different skirting options:

  • View A is designed as 3 inverted curved tiers, this allows the skirt to have gathered tiers but controlled fullness as each tier is added. (Shown in lavender)
  • View B uses traditional rectangular tiers and works well for fabrics with a directional print like stripes, pinwale corduroy, or gingham. (Shown in the floral print)

Both versions includes long sleeves with a narrow elastic casing to provide fullness at the wrist-line. The back of the dress is open from the top to the bottom and can be finished with hook and loop tap or snaps.

Bonus: This pattern is featured in Sewing With Cinnamon. During the month of May join the full sew-along as we make this dress together!

Suggested fabrics: Woven no stretch, Cotton lawn, Crinkle Rayon, Rayon Blends, Quilting Cotton. View A not suitable for stripes, plaid, or gingham. View B suitable for stripes, plaid, gingham, and pinwale corduroy

  • 8” of 1⁄8” width elastic

I really do love this pattern and fabric choice makes all the difference. I used a very soft cotton blend that has a lovely drape to it. Yes, there are some small, fussy pieces, but that is what makes it come out so beautifully in the end. It's the details make this dress stand out.

I loved this pattern. A little fiddly, but so rewarding when it is finished. I will think twice about making it in gauze again!
