Lisianthus Dress 18" Doll Clothes

5   |  

Lisianthus, featured in the Spring 2013 collection – Bloom!  With the birds trilling and the sun just beginning to peek over the horizon, she could tell it was going to be a wonderful day. She leapt out of bed, danced along the garden pathway in her bare feet and stopped to tenderly brush the petals of each flower with her fingers as she passed.
The Lisianthus dress PDF  pattern has a delicious retro flair and unique style details. Topstitching accents the chevron-pieced bodice, while the full skirt hearkens back to the sock hops of the 50′s. There’s a subtle nod to the present, though, in the gentle hi-lo contour of the skirt. Rayon seam binding spirals around the neckline and waist, culminating in the Melody Valerie signature bow.  It also sports a fully lined bodice, bound armholes, and an invisible zipper. The example dress features cotton lawn, but it would look beautiful made with cotton batiste, voile, or even a lightweight rayon. For a more winter-friendly look, try corduroy. Polyester, lightweight cotton, or china silk all work well as a lining.

Supplies Needed:
-1/2 yard of fabric for dress
-Scraps for bodice lining
-One 7-9″ invsible zipper
-1and 1/4 yards ribbon or trim

Fun dress to sew. Goes

Fun dress to sew. Goes together perfectly. Runs slim, so it is snug on my doll. If you are using quilting cotton, line the bodice with lightweight fabric.

Fits beautifully!

I love this dress! As others have said, it fits like a glove. It was a fair amount amount of work and a lot of hand sewing, but it's worth it in the end.

This pattern is wonderful. Easy

This pattern is wonderful. Easy to sew with great instructions.

Beautifully designed dress!

This is the second MVC dress I've made and, like the first, I am so pleased with the way it's turning out! MVC patterns are so well crafted that, if you sew accurately, the finished results fit like a glove. This particular dress is feminine without being overdone. Really beautiful. I also used a single layer for the skirt since I was using a standard weight cotton and not cotton lawn. The only difficulty I'm having is finding 7-9" invisible zippers is colors other than the basics. Any suggestions for resources? I love MVC patterns and can't wait to sew the next!

LOVELY design!

It was my first time doing an invisible zipper (so that wasn't as perfect as my picky self would have liked), but the dress fit like a glove and my customer LOVED it. I can't wait to make it up again — Melody does a wonderful, precise job of instructions and the pictures are very clear. I feel like I'm in a sewing class when I use her patterns — worth every penny!!!
