Forget-Me-Not is a springy, summery, feminine, ruffly dress for your 20" Maru and Friends® doll. It's all about the details. The short, puffed sleeves are trimmed with lace, and the lace trimmed collar is optional. The bodice is close fitting, and the back is finished with buttons sewn over snaps. The whimsical skirt is made up of three layers of ruffles that are gathered at both the top and bottom, creating endless volume. You can choose a different fabric print for each layer of ruffles, or make them all the same.

I was very fortunate to be able to test this pattern for Joyce Goetz of Pink Ladybug Fashions, and it turned out to be lovely! Her instructions are easy to follow, and the pictures add a level of help that is great. While the pattern is a bit labor intensive, it is worth every minute. Be sure to use high-quality thread to make your gathers to avoid breakage. It will be well worth the investment. Each pattern that I have made from this company has been well-received by those that I sew for. I have had nothing but compliments!
