great pattern for a basic dress.....have made 6 different versions using it...
Kudos to this designer for making such an adorable dress pattern. The scale is perfect for 18 inches!! I loved learning how to make a corsage flower. To view my rendition of this pattern, please visit AdollablebyRita on Etsy.com. I like to fill my shop with adorable creations and this pattern definitely created a winner!!!
This pattern has a great fit for my American Girl doll. This has proven to be a great go-to pattern for me. Easy to follow pattern with great results.
I must have missed something because I had a hard time with the pattern. Even though I cut accurately, the bodice turned out too tight for the intended doll. I had to figure out for myself how to turn the bodice right side out. The waist band and lining turned out to be not long enough to match the bodice. I cut from the pattern twice and still couldn't get it to fit. Finally, I bought 1.5 inch ribbon and used that for the waistband with a cotton for the lining. Granted, I was using a slippery satin fabric so that probably had an impact on my ability to produce the garment. The dress turned out really adorable and my daughter loves it. If I made it again, I'd use a non-satin.
My daughter love this Dress. I made four Dresses. It is very easy to follow for a beginer, too. We are german so we have a german 18 Inch Goetz doll. I had to make it a bit smaller at the sides but it was no Problem.
