The Anna peasant dress, by Genniewren Designs, is a funky, cute Euro Style dress that’s perfect for your 18” dolls. The peasant styled top part of the dress features a gathered and bound neckline with a button and loop (or hook and eye) fastening at the center back. The waistband and optional apron are sewn into the dress. The apron is large enough for a machine embroidery design instead of the sweet heart-shaped pocket if preferred. A choice of sleeve lengths and the option of a ruffle or hem band adds to the versatility of this dress PDF pattern.
The Anna Peasant Dress is the perfect design to experiment with mixing and matching colors, prints, plains, stripes, checks and trims as you can use up scraps left over from dressmaking or quilting to create a unique one of a kind designer original for your 18” doll.
