Your 18-inch doll will look beautiful in this gorgeous high-waisted summer dress by Little Miss Muffett. The layered dress is a combination of fabric and net sewn together to create one beautiful dress. The design includes a fabric sun dress with a corset-style, fully lined bodice with narrow shoulder straps and gathered skirt; and a net dress layered on top with lace-edging on the bodice neck and on the bell sleeves, and a gathered skirt with a deep hem ruffle. The two layers are sewn together along the waistline. The fabric dress closes at the back with hook and loop tape on the bodice only, while the net bodice closes at the neck with a button and loop.
This fairly easy pattern is designed to fit 18-inch soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®.
