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.
A very pretty pattern with such a wonderful attention to details! The very precise directions made it easy to put together!
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 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.
A gorgeous nightgown made with heirloom sewing details - surprising easy to sew following step-by-step instructions and info in the "Tip Jar". I made mine with batiste and was very pleased with the result. The little bunny snuggle toy is so cute and easy to sew - I tested it for 18 on Main and then made 3 more of them - my little girl friends love putting their dolls to bed with it.
