Welcome To The Kimberley Coast, the Australian Outback’s premier destination. Whether you're strolling along the beach or taking in the view from a cruise ship, the Outback Libby: Kimberley Tank Dress is the perfect choice for your Aussie-styled adventure.
The flirty ruffles and lace inset give this charming dropped waist dress just the right amount of feminine flair. Princess seams highlight the inset design with gentle curves in the front and clean lines in the back. The dress is fully lined for an easily sewn neckline and finished off with armscye binding eliminating turning through the narrow shoulders! A button and loop closure at back adds another pretty detail.
Suggested fabrics: challis, rayon blends, cotton voile, batiste, or other soft, lightweight fabrics. Lace for Inset. Rayon challis was used in both cover examples. Fabric and lace were both originally white, dyed with liquid RIT dye to create custom fabrics with an exact match. Check out the LJ Instagram for a video of the dyeing process! instagram.com/libertyjaneclothing
*1/2 yard is needed to cut bias ruffles. If using lace trim or straight grain ruffles, only 1/4 yard fabric is needed.
The Liberty Jane® Outback Libby: Kimberley Tank Dress PDF Pattern is designed to fit an 18 inch doll, such as American Girl® or Tonner My Imagination.

This pattern is wonderful, it was easy to follow and the fit on the dolls is perfect. I made two dresses with this pattern, I used cotton print fabrics, I love the results. I added my personal touch, sewing the dresses with one ruffle and lace, the next dress I make with this pattern, will have the three ruffles. Thank you Cinnamon, for designing beautiful patterns for our dolls.
