Traditional Native Dress 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

5 reviews   |  

Simple and practical best describe the Traditional Native Dress. This dress is my interpretation of the type of dress a young Native girl would wear to do her chores or to run and play. A slightly fitted, a-line style that can we worn with or without a belt. Dress it up or dress it down depending on the material you choose and the trim you use. Leave it plain or sew on rows of ribbon for everyday. Add a necklace or some beadwork around the neck for a dressy look.
This is a user friendly pattern with step-by-step instructions and lots of pictures. It's such an easy pattern you'll want to make a few of these dresses so your doll will be ready for any occasion.

    Very quick to sew! Takes a little extra time to pin the ribbons, but they complete the dress!

    Native American dress

    Very straightforward instructions. Quick to make. Made for granddaughter to dress her doll during her homeschooling lessons on native Americans. Simple instructions to personalize , according to tribes.

    Traditional Native Dress

    I enjoyed making this little dress. The in’s are very clear and detailed. It gives you suggestions and tips. It also has enough room to make your own choices. I tried to imitate the Plateau Indians instead of the Plains Tribes.
