Sweet Empire Dress

This is a lovely pattern. I made it in 2 quilt fabrics. It fits my 13inch Maru mini doll very well.

With or without!

This is an awesome pattern! I love it with or without the collar. Can't decide which way? You don't have to! the collar is separate. So your favorite doll can have it or not!

Simple & Sweet

I was a tester for this pattern. It's a very simple pattern yet the results are amazing! So many possibilities - combinations of fabrics, adding a belt, adding piping or lace. I made this pattern for my H4H doll and it fit beautifully. I love it and will be making this again :D
