Lyrical Dance 13-14.5" Doll Clothes Knitting Pattern

3 reviews   |  

Create a lovely dance outfit using only stockinette and garter stitch. Knit flat from bottom upwards, in one piece until armhole division. Sleeves are created by casting on extra stitches at the armholes. The dress has an overskirt. Use lovely bright colours or glittering yarn at the hem and bodice to make each dress something special! The skirt has a back seam with a button for closure. The low back gives it a Lyrical look.


Tips:
The skirt part can be lengthened to make a pretty party or flower girl dress.
Accessories:
A dance dress is not complete without a pair of panties and hair tie.


Stitches used: stockinette and garter

Beautiful elegant dance or party dress for Wellie Wisher or other 14 inch dolls

This was a very well thought out pattern with easy to follow instructions and you never lose your place as you just check off each row as you do it. The pattern design allows creative freedom not only with the colours you use but even where you place them and then it can be a short dance outfit with panties or a party dress complete with panties The hair tie is the finishing touch. I like that you can use ribbon or yarn cord for the eyelet trim on the neckline and closure in the back. My granddaughters were so much in love with this dress that they want me to make one to fit their 18 inch dolls. Either I wait for another pattern to come out or I go buy another Wellie Wisher doll. I really enjoyed knitting this and it was a fairly quick knit. I did test knit for this pattern.

Lovely, versatile pattern

I tested this dress in a longer size to make it a "party" dress and am really pleased with the results. It looks great with solid or gradient yarn. The panties are a nice touch, too! The dolls I used as models include a 13-in Paola Reina doll and also the 13-inch Les Cheries doll, and this pattern works for it as well as the larger Wellie Wisher dolls.
