Fairy Tale Fantasy 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

12   |  

Your favorite 18” Miss 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 18” soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®. 

Don't miss the little sister pattern designed to fit 14 – 14.5 inch dolls such as WellieWishers™ and Hearts for Hearts Girls®, also available at Pixie Faire.
