Clara Dress 18" Doll Clothes

5   |  

Clara is the first in a series of seven in the Tribute Collection. The PDF pattern features a princess line dress with a twelve gore tea length skirt. Although, it is shown in only three different styles, it has virtually limitless design possibilities by interchanging the bodices, sleeves and skirts. All three bodice views are self-lined so the inside of the dress will look just as extraordinary as the outside.

Clara Doll Dress

Great pattern, easy to follow, a breeze to sew. Very versatile with the 3 styles and different fabrics you can see anything from a square dance dress to a pageant dress Grand daughters were impressed.



This dress was fun to sew. It fits perfectly. I love the heart detail at the hem. The directions are easy to understand with a lot of pictures to go with them. I enjoyed learning a new technique while making the heart hemline. I had never used Ultra Solvy for this technique. It works great!
