The Liberty Jane® Boomerit Falls Dress Pattern designed to fit 18 inch dolls is straight out of the pages of the latest Outback Libby book: Mystery on Lightning Ridge! Libby may have mooved to the middle of nowhere, but that doesn't mean she can't bring her fashion sense with her to the Outback!
This beautifully detailed and ultra feminine dress is sure to delight! The bodice features princess seams and rows of the tiniest pintucks at center front. At the back there is a center panel with tiny rows of elastic shirring to create a smocked look and provide the perfect fit. The side back and waistband feature a delicate crochet lace overlay.
Suggested fabrics include cotton voile or other lightweight cottons, handkerchief linen, and lightweight rayon. The lining can be made from any suitable fabric to match the dress.
If using a white cotton voile, you could also use this for the lining. For our turqoise dress, as pictured, we used a lightweight linen for a fun pop of color!
Have fun creating this beautiful dress!

This dress is very pretty, but be advised that the straps are nearly impossible to make as directed. A "Bobby pin method" is given for turning the extremely narrow straps right side out, and this method is poorly explained and nearly impossible to execute once attempted. I destroyed my fabric trying to turn it, hurt my fingers, and was left extremely frustrated and had to make them a completely different way. Also, there is no pattern piece provided for the skirt, the center back, or the rectangle piece used to make the bodice pin tucks; you are just given dimensions and have to measure and cut them yourself. I feel if I am paying for a pattern (which I didn't for this one, as I picked it up on a Freebie Friday), I shouldn't have to be measuring and cutting my own pattern pieces. That is why I am buying the pattern in the first place - to have this part of the design process completed for me. Although the dress turned out nice, due to the level of frustration, I'm glad I didn't pay for this one.
Ok another winner. I made it into a top, yes not a dress. Made it my way with no shirring in the back and longer all the way around. I will be making many more of these in many ways. I will be posting this new outfit on facebook by tomorrow. Another winner.
WoW! The pattern is easy to follow and detailed, and can easily be made out of just about anything! I made them out of an old pair of heavy-weight knit leggings lined with felt, and it came out great! totally recommend it!
Adorable dress, wonderful fit. Thank you.
love it, easy
