Your favorite little doll will look adorable in this beautiful Turn-of-the Century dress and pinafore. Although not historically correct, in that the dress and ‘pinny’ are made as one, the versatility of the dress is perfect for various Nursery Rhyme and Fairy-Tale characters. Closing with Hook and Loop Tape in back, the lined dress bodice has a modest round neck, is fitted to the waist and has the option of long or short sleeves. The Pinafore has a pretty turn-back collar and a faux Center Front ‘opening’ with 3 small buttons. The dress has a full gathered skirt, and broad eyelet lace trim, topped with satin ribbon, finish the pinafore’s hem. This relatively easy PDF pattern is designed to fit 14 – 14.5 inch dolls such as WellieWishers™ and Hearts for Hearts Girls®.
Don't miss the big sister pattern: Fairy Tale Fantasy for 18" dolls such as American Girl®, also available at Pixie Faire.
