The Saylor Dress Doll Clothes Pattern For 15" Ruby Red Fashion Friends™

2 reviews   |  

The one-piece Saylor dress was inspired by a combination of vintage sailor-style dress patterns such as the Gunne Sax and Little Darlings versions for children from the 1980s.

This doll-sized version features a front skirt inset, a contrasting bodice with a traditional sailor collar for a two-piece look (as if wearing a blouse), a gathered skirt with trimmed inset, an array of trims, buttons, and bows, and is available with both long length sleeve and short sleeve views. Includes 2 bonus items: a tip on applying trims in a straight line, and a technique for constructing a tulle petticoat are included.

In addition, listed separately, Frog Princess Fashions offers a custom Saylor Machine Embroidery Designs Set for this pattern and similar 15” doll clothes patterns that includes nautical designs for the inset, sleeve cuffs, skirt center front, collar, bodice inset, and hem, plus a bonus tote!
