Layered In Lace 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

1 review   |  

What 18-inch doll doesn’t need a simple party dress that is perfect any time of the year?  This doll clothes pattern, by Just 4 Us Dolls, provides a sophisticated look that is easily accomplished by sewing gathered eyelet lace on to a single piece of woven fabric. The single back seam brings the dress together and closes with hook and loop tape or sew on snaps. The shoulder straps shown are 1/4” wide with your choice of placement and front decoration that will make this look uniquely your own.

    Layered in Lace

    This was a wonderful pattern. So easy, yet it made a darling dress. It is a good way to use some of your stored lace and make a little girl and her doll happy. I am sure I will use it many more times.
