Blueberry Steampunk 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

  |  

Your 18-inch doll will look adorable in this gorgeous Gothic Steampunk outfit from Little Miss Muffett. Done in pastels, a favorite of the Japanese, the outfit, a concoction of ruffles, ribbons and gathers, was inspired by the Harajuku Fashion scene where lace, ribbons and ‘Girlie Girl’ styles are very much in fashion.

The dress has a lined and fitted bodice with ruffle edged Shoulder Princess Seams, a ruffled Button Placket and ruffled Neck Edge. Short gathered Puff Sleeves with ruffled hems and a three-tier Skirt consisting of a gathered ruffled edged scalloped Overskirt, a gathered Underskirt and a faux Tulle Petticoat. The Dress closes at the back with Hook & Loop Tape.

The fully lined jaunty Top Hat has a piped lace-up side detail with eyelets and tongue, a wired brim for shape and a tiny Hat Pin as a bonus. Delightful ruffle edged Knee-high Leg Warmers complete the outfit.

This fairly easy pattern is designed to fit 18-inch soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®
