Edwardian Fancy 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

5 reviews   |  

Inspired by gowns worn during the Edwardian period, this gown is a perfect choice for a “fancy” gown that can be dressed up or down. Depending on your fabric and embellishment choices it can be appropriate for an afternoon stroll at Downton Abbey, or an elegant gown for evening festivities on the Titanic.

It has a 3/4 length sleeve, edged with eyelet or lace. The high waist is accented with a two-tier ruffled peplum edged with lace, and a matching waistband encircles the bodice.

The skirt is narrow and fitted, typical for the period. It has an inset front panel, edged with lace and embellished with optional seed pearls. The bodice has an inset lace panel for just the right touch of elegance. This dress can be made of cotton for a simple look for day, or silk for an elegant evening ensemble.

Instructions for making the hat can be found at Pixie Faire in the pattern called “Heirloom Hat”, and instructions for the purse and gloves can be found in the pattern called “Dress It Up”. Or choose to buy the bundle and save.

Edwardian Fancy Dress Pattern

I like it. It’s cute but I don’t think little girls appreciate this fashion as much as adults do. I am making another in a different color and embellishment. The young gals love the mod, sparkly, bling outfits.

Edwardian Fancy

Loved it. Great directions, I'm beginner and had success with this pattern. Made the hat as well- fun to create!

Edwardian Fancy Dress - lovely

Great fitting pattern. The instructions were well written with lots of helpful tips for choosing and matching laces for trims. This pattern is full of embellishments. I had so much fun picking trims. I used Venice lace. As detailed as this pattern was, it was all easy sewing. I used temporary glue to hold the lace in place while I sewed it. Look closely at the dresses--did you see that there are two layers to the overskirt? The fullness there and the overall design make it perfect for your doll to wear while watching the final season of Downton Abbey. Be sure to look for the matching accessory pack -- gloves, bag and hat.
