1850's Girls Dress Pattern For 15" Ruby Red Fashion Friends Dolls

2 reviews   |  

Make your own pretty 1850's style dress for 15" Ruby Red Fashion Friends® dolls with this Keepers Dolly Duds sewing pattern. The dress features two design options:

View A Bodice: A trimmed edged vest overlay that extends down over the top of the skirting. Add a single ribbon bow to connect the two vest pieces at center front. 

View B Bodice:  Double front trimmed edge panels, overlayed on top of the basic bodice front. This design looks great with a bow accent or without.

Both Variations: Short sleeves were typical early 1850's fashion for young girls and this pattern provides an option for either single or double-layered sleeves. The gown features double skirting with an over-skirt that has a trimmed scalloped shaped hemline. Lace, bias, or piping can be used as edging. The back fastens with three buttons or snaps closures and side ties form a pretty bow at the back.

This is a relatively easy intermediate pattern and a great choice for someone with limited sewing experience.

This pattern is designed to fit a 15" Ruby Red Fashion Friends doll. It is also available separately for 18" American Girl Dolls and 14.5" WellieWishers Dolls 

Suggested Fabrics: View A and B Dress in a lightweight fabric such as cotton, linen, or silk. Not suitable for knits.

    The most beautiful dress!

    Just completed that dress yesterday. My Ruby Stella looks gorgeous wearing this dress! The pattern is great and the instructions are easy to follow. The bodice fits very nice but not to tight. I decided not to make a belt but everything else is according to instructions. Thank you for the great pattern!

    I haven't been able to start this lovely dress yet, but I know it will be beautiful! I've read the instructions and they are clear and easy to understand. I love the scalloped top skirt! Thank you Pixie Faire. Can't wait to make this awesome pattern!
