Bodice Details Dress Pattern For A Girl For All Time Dolls

  |  

Create charming 1930s era dresses with two distinct bodice variations for your 16" doll with this beautifully designed Keepers Dolly Duds pattern. 

View A is a sweetie of a dress with an asymmetrical bodice that sweeps down below the waistline for an interesting visual effect. It sports a rounded collar and short puffy sleeves and has side ties that form a pretty bow in the back. Crisp pleats in the front and gathers in the back of the skirting very in keeping with a 1930's style but overall these dresses are classic and timeless.

View B is sharply styled with an off center front bodice that extends over the shoulder fastened down with three mini buttons. The rounded collar, tulip sleeves, and a smart looking belt complete the look.

As an added BONUS, I've offered a long sleeve option for either dress. The dress can be made without pleats by opting to gather the skirting. Have fun mixing and matching up the details with this pattern.
