Lisianthus Dress 18" Doll Clothes

9 reviews   |  

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

Skill Level: Intermediate

Lisianthus Dress Best Ever

This is the best thing I've made so far. Have to congratulate myself on my fabric selection - the secret to all the patterns no matter who the designer is. I selected some cotton lawn, floral of course. Could not have asked for easier pattern. Totally makes sense and as a hand sewer, I loved how the dress went together. I really think I outdid myself - or was it the well designed, tailored, unique little dress. I wonder!! Take this designer's couture sewing course. It really gave me a ton of confidence.

Something's Missing...

This pattern left me frustrated a couple of times. Firstly, the skirt pattern piece is not included. They just give you measurements to cut out a recatangle. I would think for a $9 pattern delivered digitally they could include this, just to save me a step or two. Also, if you choose to bind the armholes, the width of the bias tape called for is not near enough. It called for 1" wide strips. I used this initially and didn't have enough fabric to wrap around the seam, even though I followed the instructions as to seam allowance width and trimming. I had to pop the stitches and cut new bias that was about 1-3/4" wide. This performed much better. This has me wondering who even tests these patterns? Not the first time I've had to improvise with a Pixie Faire pattern. And I am a very experienced seamstress so it's not like I'm new at this. The dress is, however a very pretty shape and fits the doll well, and I like my finished product. Just not the price of the incomplete pattern. :-/

Llsianthus Dress for 18” doll

I purchased this pattern because of the unique bodice and midriff detailing. I’ve made it and it turned out really cute. I made it from quilting cotton so I did not double the skirt, I hemmed it instead. I thought the doubled skirt out of cotton would be too bulky. The directions were easy to follow and I had no issues whatsoever. I intend to make a few more with different trims, fabric patterns and colors. Thank you for a beautiful pattern.

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.
