Rosalie Dress 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

3 reviews   |  

Looking for a stylish new dress for your 18 inch doll?  This fun, spunky little frock is a great choice for a special occasion! This 18 inch doll clothes PDF pattern includes two dress bodice options:

View A (Cover Dress) is a charming sundress with princess seams and double shoulder strap detail. The bodice is fully lined with straps enclosed in the shoulder seams.

View B (Pink Dress) is a stylish overbodice to showcase a fabulous stretch lace. This design includes long sleeves sewn with french seams and is sewn to the delicate under-bodice (described in view A).

Both options include three ruffles dancing atop a basic straight skirt. The “Rosalie”  dress closes up the back with a placket for hooks and eyes - a couture and delicate finish! (optional directions also included for a simpler hook and loop tape closure.)

The Rosalie dress is a beautiful new design for 18 inch dolls with body types similar to American Girl.

Recommended Fabrics:  A lightweight cotton or silk is ideal for the body of this dress. We used a cotton/silk sateen and cotton lawn for these examples. Use a pretty stretch lace for the over- bodice; dancewear mesh, heavy tulle, or lightweight netting will work well for the skirt ruffles. Any light silk or poly fabric will do beautifully as a lining. 

Supplies Needed:
-1/4 yard fabric
-1/4 yard lining
-1/4 yard stretch lace (lace over bodice)
-1/2 yard (45” wide) or 1/4 yard (60” width) of dancewear mesh or tulle for ruffles
-5 - Hook and eyes (or closure of your choice) Matching thread
-Optional:  3 yards narrow trim for skirt ruffle hems 

Skill Level:  Intermediate

I really liked this pattern.

I really liked this pattern. I adapted it to make a pirate Halloween costume which turned out great. Next I will make it as is. Great directions which are easy to follow.

Sweet dress with a trendy edge!!!

Loved making this! Directions are clear, the pattern went together easily and fit is perfect...both on an older Jess and a new Ivy. I used all the couture techniques included for a very neat and professional finish. Will definitely be making the version with the lace overlay as soon as I find suitable fabric.
