Charm School Dress 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

1   |  

The Charm School Dress is not only suited to a charm school class, but is perfect for an afternoon tea, a birthday party, and much more.
With three collar options and two hem lengths, and puffed sleeves or sleeveless options, this adorable dress offers multiple looks for your 18” dolls’ many social engagements!
Stitch it up in a solid cotton with lace, rick-rack, or soutache trim, or try a soft cotton print and coordinate the collar, cuffs, and hem band with a companion fabric for a darling effect.
You can accent the (mock) front opening with little buttons for a sweet double-breasted look, or add a little ribbon at the center of the collar.
Directions for making a fabric rose, a fabric bow, or an ascot for embellishment are included as a bonus.

    Another great design

    I loved testing this design for Frog Princess Fashions. It was easy to make, the instructions are clear and it fits so well. I love the designs Peggy comes out with and look forward to making more of this pattern as well as future ones.
