Fun Dresses 18" Doll Knitting Pattern

4 reviews   |  

This knitting pattern includes two really fun dresses. The design is named "Fun Dresses" because the stitch pattern on the skirt looks really cute both on the right as well as the wrong side, so two dress styles are offered using both sides. Both dresses are knit flat from hem upwards with a back closure of 6 buttons.

To add a special touch to the pattern, there are two panties options: one with short rows (for dolls with fuller ''derriere'') and also panties without the short rows. Bonus instructions for a hair tie are included.

You'll get some great inspiration from the Testers photos in the pattern. There are many possibilities to decorate these dresses such as using contrast yarn and single crochet along the armholes and also edges of panties. You can also become creative with the bow and also the I-Cord belt. Add tiny satin roses to the waist. Have fun knitting these dresses!
