Country Rose Dress Knitting and Sewing 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

1 review   |  

Your 18-inch doll will love this beautiful, stylish winter dress, by Little Miss Muffett! Made to resemble a Knitted Top and Fabric Skirt, this dress is perfect for any occasion.

  • The Top is knitted in Stockinette Stitch from the neck down with a button closure at Center Back. It has a pretty laced front placket, bell shaped raglan sleeves and ribbon bows just above the bell shaping while crochet Scallop edging on the sleeves and at the waist add a touch of flair.
  • The gathered fabric skirt which is stitched to the Top also has a crochet Scallop edging on the hem edge to tie the dress together.
  • To keep her hair tidy, the trendy Bandana Headband, which is finished with gold or decorative thread, is the perfect accessory for your doll. 

This is a super knit for beginners as the Top is knit all in one and has several design features as well as an attractive crochet edging.

This relatively easy pattern is designed to fit 18” soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl ®.

This test pattern for me was unbelievable. So many learning curves. Even though the pattern gave choices, I knew the more I learnt, the better I’d get. I went every step of the way with the pattern. I’m self taught in crocheting and this taught me more - how to work evenly, to attach crocheting work to sewing and also to attach knitting to sewing. The whole ensemble came together so perfectly. I loved every minute of it. Once again, a beautiful thoughtful pattern.
