I don't know which is more beautiful- the pattern itself or the gown it makes. Stunning photography and step by step photos walk you through the creation of this gorgeous, heirloom gown. Your dolls will cherish this nightgown! 18 on Main has a knack for creating more than just instructions. I am glad to have added this gown and pattern to my collection.

Adorable Heirloom

It's nice to see some patterns that use our heirloom sewing talents. This is adorable and the bunny is a nice bonus. I can't wait to make it.


I loved the heirloom design

I loved the heirloom design of the gown. It was more challenging than most doll clothes patterns, but I loved making it. My granddaughter fell in love with it and could not wait for me to get it finished so she could have it. The pattern is very well done. I will make it again and I look forward to new patterns from this designer.

Beautiful Heirloom Dream and Bunny Sweet

This pattern sews up as a wonderful nightgown with heirloom details. It is easy to sew, instructions and photos are clear, and the details are beautiful. The Tip Jar section is full of information and will help anyone to achieve perfect results. The bonus Bunny Sweet plush is a great addition to any doll’s sweet dreams! I will make many more of these for my granddaughters!
