Becka's Dress 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

1   |  

"Becka's Dress" is the Flossie Potter doll-sized version of a 1957 girl's dress by Marian Martin. It was suggested by a fan of Pixie Faire patterns, who sent a photo to me.

The dress features puffed short sleeves with cuffs, and a squared sweetheart neckline formed by two overlapping front bodice pieces. Two curves in the proper right bodice display decorative buttons. The round skirt falls beneath a curved front sash that ties in back. For an optional look, the front of the sash can continue as a panel to the hem.

Making this dress can be a fun way to mix and match fabrics from your remnant stash! It's also a great dress to make with holiday colors!

This Intermediate Level PDF sewing pattern contains 14 pages of instructions with full-color photo illustrations, 4 pages of printable summary instructions (to save on printer ink!), and 9 pages of pattern pieces.

Vintage fun!

I love making vintage dresses for my dolls because I have no little girls to sew for any more! This pattern reminds me of one I would have worn myself. It is fairly easy to make and a lot of fun to design the fabric combinations you want to use. You will love your finished dresses!
