Fifties Favorite 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

3 reviews   |  

Fifties Favorite is a vintage inspired dress for your 18” doll. What makes this dress special is the bodice treatment. The curved yoke extends into the sleeves, giving it a distinctive 1950’s feel. It can be embellished with hand or machine embroidery, or left plain. The yoke is shown trimmed with lace, but can also be embellished with rick rack or piping. A special easy technique is introduced to get those corners on the bodice sewn perfectly every time. A fun addition to the dress are the fancy patch pockets. They feature a lace-trimmed flap and can be embellished with embroidery. Instructions for the gloves are available in the pattern “Dress It Up” on Pixie Faire.
Depending on the fabric and trim choices, this versatile dress can be for special occasions or every day. Dress it up or dress it down; either way it is sure to become a favorite.

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

Fifties Favorite is one of my favorites!

This pattern is on my favorites list! I learned several new techniques using these excellent instructions and photos and the outcome was adorable. The dress fit perfectly and is by far one of the cutest dresses I have made. I have several Crabapple patterns and love them all.
