Welcome to Dolly Wears ''60s N Simply Sweet''. Let's have some fun going back to the 1960's. With crazy patterns, bright colors and let's not forget those famous Go-Go- Boots.

This dress was inspired by a 1963 little girls summer dress pattern, although you could find women of all ages wearing this iconic dress. So, why not dress your favorite 18'' doll in this timeless and spirited 1960's dress? This is a simple and easy dress to make, with a simple adornment of six buttons on the dress front.
