Dandelion Days Sundress 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

6 reviews   |  

If you see a dandelion, you know that also means warm sun, green grass, and cooling off with a glass of lemonade and something cool and pretty to wear.  The Dandelion Days Sundress will help with the pretty part!  This is a quick-sewing pattern featuring a drawstring neckline threaded with ribbon, a high-waisted lined bodice, back tabs, and a gathered high-low skirt that can be used with border prints.  Two options are available:  one with chevron stripes and an optional waistband/belt at an intermediate sewing level, and a simplified version with an easy sewing level.  Both options offer two sets of cutting lines to fit soft-bodied dolls with varying measurements.  Craft instructions for a vintage-style fan are also included so your doll can remain comfortable when the temperature rises.  Stay cool and happy sewing!

This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.

Dandelion Days Sundress

This pattern has very detailed directions and the pictures really help to move from step to step. The little Dandelion Days Sundress turned out so cute!!! I made a contrasting belt, bow, and also at the bottom hem of the dress. Darling!
