Easy-to-Sew Dress

The pattern came together fairly easily, although I found the end result had slightly bulky seams along the waistline. If I sewed the pattern again, I would not serge the edge of the bodice and the top edge of the skirt before joining the two together; instead I would serge them after sewing the waist seam, to minimize bulk. I used a fat quarter for the outer fabric and some scrap cotton for the lining. The bodice, without adjustments, and with the darts, is slightly loose on my Journey Girls doll, but not so much to be a problem. I haven't dug my AG doll out of storage yet to check it on her for comparison (the three-year-old gets to play with the Journey Girl if she wants; she has to wait until she's older for the AG doll).

Flour sack frock

It was easy to put the dress together. The instructions are very easy to follow. My dress turned out so cute but, as in previous review, the neck is a little wide. I like the sleeves.


Neck adjustment

Thank you for the free Friday pattern Flour Sack Frock For 18” Dolls. I did want to note an adjustment I made as I sewed. The overlap front is so cute but using pattern instructions the neckline had a really big gap. I placed the two top pieces on my American Girl doll and adjusted it until it looked nice. I pinned it and then sewed the top pieces together along the bottom. This left two triangle shaped pieces dangling at the bottom which I trimmed off. I then sewed the top to the gathered skirt following pattern instructions. When I tried the dress back on my doll, it was very difficult to put the dress on so I changed the 4 inch seam on the skirt back to a 3 inch long seam. Now it was easy to take the dress on and off my doll. I liked this adjustment better than having a too large and gapping neckline. Thank you again for Freebie Fridays! Laurel
