The A-Line dress is an iconic 1960's fashion piece. The new Liberty Jane® Euro Libby: Abbey Road dress designed to fit 18 inch dolls is a modern take on this classic style! Contrasting collar fabrics and high end embellishments elevate the level of fashion and style, creating a standout piece for your doll!

The PDF sewing pattern includes a variety of options. The dress can be made with short sleeves or sleeveless. It can also be made with or without the collar, which creates a variety of unique looks. Fabric choice will also play a part in the overall vibe of the piece. Use something like dupioni or taffeta for a special occasion holiday look, or a premium quilting cotton for an everyday schoolgirl type look. The possibilities are endless!

I hope you will make the same pattern for Wellie Wisher Doll. I love this pattern and the era.
Great pattern. I added onto the hem length after reading the reviews and am glad I did. Other than that I am very happy with how this turned out. Have made a couple of adjustments for the next time. Great instructions.
It was really easy and came together well. A little confused with the armhole construction. So I went my own way with that. I wii make the sleeve version soon. It’s a nice pattern
This is an amazing pattern. It’s easier than I thought it would be and is so easy to put together!! I love that it works as a girl OR boy doll shoe pattern!!!!
I just love this pattern it is so easy and quick to make it is adorable on my doll.
