Buttoned Belle 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

Featured In Pixie Packs
1 review   |  

This simple A-line dress has an unmistakable 1930s vibe with its asymmetrical front and its three part color scheme really helps this design to pop. The dress is a basic knee-length a-line with the option of short puffed sleeves or long bishop sleeves. It opens all the way in the back for easy dressing and fastens with five buttons. The focal point is the three color lines running down the left side that is topped with a button-down double-scallop.

This PDF sewing pattern by Keepers Dolly Duds is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.
