“Fun in the Sun” is a versatile summer dress for your 18” doll that can also transform into a jumper for Fall. The clever design can be worn buttoned down the front, or can close in the back to create two different looks. It can also be made completely reversible for two looks in one. It has a shaped yoke for the bodice, and fastens across the shoulders with straps. The yoke is fully lined and can be made from matching or contrasting fabric. There are three variations for the full skirt. View A has a frilly ruffle and View B has a patch pocket as well as a more tailored band that can be embellished with rick rack. View C is a completely reversible construction and can be made in two contrasting fabrics. Instructions and a template are given for an easy technique for creating a closure with buttonholes or Velcro®. Mix-it, match it, switch it around - no matter how your doll wears it she is sure to have “Fun in the Sun.”

This dress was very easy to make and the directions w/pictures help with every step. You will not be disappointed with the results. The dress is so cute on the doll.
