Bernadette's Dress 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

2   |  

Bernadette's Dress is a sweet classic A-Line with a sailor collar and tie, decorative front buttons, two length options, and three sleeve styles designed to fit 18-inch dolls such as American Girl®. The dress ties in back with a sash.

With its innovative assembly procedure, Bernadette's dress will sew up in a breeze. And if you don't have a turning tool, the instructions show you a new way to turn the sash and tie. The 43-page INTERMEDIATE Level PDF sewing pattern gives you 23 pages of step-by-step instructions with full-color photos, 7 pages of summary instructions (to save on printer ink!), and 9 pages of pattern pieces.

It's an Anytime Dress that your dolls will enjoy all year!

Bernadette's dress

I really like this style. I've made it twice, but I had a little trouble with the collar trim and bow both times. I think I'll try again--I like the dress so much, I think I just have to believe the directions instead of my intuition!

Pretty dress with awesome details!

This pattern sews up much quicker than you expect from looking at the finished dress! The instructions clearly show you all the short-cuts and tips you need to make a beautiful dress that your doll will love to wear!
