Fifties Flair 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

4 reviews   |  

Ring-a-ding-ding, make a dress that really sings with this beautifully designed Keepers Dolly Duds pattern. These fab summertime frocks are inspired by the swinging styles of the 1950s and will make a marvelous addition to your dolls fifties wardrobe!

View A has a cross over waistband treatment with a wide open clean neckline and short puffy sleeves with sleeve bands.

View B has a wide open neckline with extended shoulders and short self-lined sleeves. It features a small collar with a tab detail that anchors a center neckline bow. Both dresses fasten up the back with seven buttons. Side ties form a pretty bow tie in the back which allow for some adjustment when fitting the dress on dolls with varying waistlines.

    Love this pattern!

    I have made "sew" many dresses off this pattern not only for my many dolls, but also for the dolls of special little girls in my life. I especially like making it out of polka dot fabric with a tone-on-tone white trim. It is definitely one of my favorites!

    Fifties flair

    Very clear instructions, easy to follow. I made both versions for my granddaughter’s dolls, for her birthday. They are adorable.
