Sweet and summery, very versatile

I enjoyed using this pattern in a variety of fabrics and lengths. It does fit a variety of dolls as given, but I did a few minor tweaks to get a little better fit on a few of my alternate brand 18"-ish dolls like the Gotz 50cm girls. Happy to recommend this pattern!

Very Versatile

This is a very versatile pattern that goes together quickly. The bodice is a great space to add embellishments, I added a design with heat transfer vinyl.
