Country Diva Dress & Top 14" - 15" Doll Clothes Pattern

2   |  

Has your doll dreamed of playing the Grand Ole Opry one day? Does she want to look prettier than a glob of butter on a stack of wheat cakes? Well butter my biscuit and call me sassy, because the Country Diva Dress and Top is just what she needs to get gussied up!

This versatile dress features a lined princess-seamed bodice, a lined and freestanding gathered skirt, an optional faux placket, and a wide, not quite-off-the-shoulder neckline topped with a split, bias- cut ruffle. Extra cutting lines are included to fit three different doll brands. Variations include a continuous ruffle, an unlined skirt, a simplified bodice, and separate pattern pieces to create a bonus top. You can choose to make a simple project or a lace-enhanced extravaganza--but however you make it, it's guaranteed to dill your pickle!

This pattern was sized on an American Girl WellieWishers™ Doll (Chest: 6-3/4", Waist: 5-7/8", Hips 7-3/4”) and Ruby Red Fashion Friends® doll (Chest: 7-1/8", Waist: 6-1/4", Hips: 7-3/4"). The pattern also fits Hearts for Hearts Girls® (Chest: 6-1/2", Waist: 5-3/4”, Hips: 7"), which have very similar measurements. The most critical measurement is the waist size. If your dolls' measurements are different from your doll of choice you may need to make adjustments to the pattern for an optimal fit.

Country Diva design is also available for 18" dolls separately.

Suggested Fabrics: Tightly woven fabric such as quilter's cotton or other similar medium-light to medium-weight natural fabrics are ideal for the main fabric. Lightweight fabrics such as batiste or lawn work well for the Bodice Lining, and lightweight silky fabrics work well for the Skirt Lining.

Versatility Dress for Wellie Wishers

I was luck enough to test this pattern. Love it, so many ways and looks to make. I liked it so much that I had to buy the Versatility Dress for 18 Inch dolls

Versatility dress for H4H

This is a great pattern to start your "basics" pattern collection for H4H dolls. It gives a well fitting bodice with well-sized armscyes and optional princess seaming. There are several skirt variations. This makes it a "versatile" pattern to mix and match.
