Basking in Ruffles Bundle 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

3 reviews   |  

These easy PDF patterns, by Little Miss Muffett, comprising an adorable skirt and gorgeous blouse are a must for any 18-inch Miss’ wardrobe. The skirt has a top-stitched Basque with an elasticized waist. The gathered wrap section is finished with a ruffled strip of frayed fabric at hem edge. An optional button, ribbon rose or ribbon bow at the hip, completes the skirt. The blouses are lined and fitted and come to just below the waistline. The three necklines offered are soft and wide, and deep enough to allow a necklace to sit comfortably. The shallow sweetheart neckline has an optional bow; the round neckline with gathered lace has a tiny, dangly ribbon bow and the scoop neckline has a ruffled, buttoned placket. The puff sleeves are fitted and cuffed with fabric cut on the bias for extra ease. Create many different outfits by mixing and matching blouse and skirt ruffles, Basques and blouses; the options are endless. These patterns are designed to fit 18” soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®.

The Basking in Ruffles and Gigi patterns can also be purchased individually at Pixie Faire.

This dress has star quality

I’ve made three of these, one in 18” and two in 14”, and they have tremendous impact. Pretty easy to make with a really nice result.

Great directions, beautiful outcome

The jacket turned out OH-SO-Cute! I have also made the blouse and skirt and the entire outfit is adorable. The overall directions were very clear and easy to follow.

Loved the little skirt pattern. It was quick and easy to make and the result is so sweet. I haven't yet made the blouse but will review when I do. This pattern bundle is a great deal. Thanks Little Miss Muffett
