Create a mini wardrobe with this fabulously versatile ‘go anywhere’ dress pattern. Make a pretty dress for your doll or by changing fabrics, create a blouse and pinafore; a blouse, vest and skirt; or a dress and vest. The dress has a fitted bodice which has Central Front and Back Panels, Side Panels, a Yoke and a Button Placket for added visual interest. Short Puff Sleeves have top-stitched cuffs as does the Skirt with a top-stitched lace hem edge. The gathered sleeves and skirt soften the top-stitched detail of the lined Bodice which closes in the back with Hook and Loop Tape. This relatively easy pattern is designed to fit 14.5-inch dolls such as WellieWishers™.
Please see our other listing to make these dresses for 18" dolls such as American Girl®.
