Your 18 inch doll will be sure to set off the flash bulbs as she strolls down the red carpet on Opening Night in this beautiful eye-catching gown. The fly-away overskirt reveals a short trendy pencil skirt underneath as seen on the runway and your favorite pop star. The upper mesh yoke provides just the right look to complement the fitted bodice. The dramatic back features a stretch sheer back and enchanting pleated over-skirt. The dress is fully lined and closes with an invisible zipper and hook and eye closure. (Beaded trim on the neckline is a necklace/choker, not part of the dress pattern).
Suggested fabrics include: silk dupioni, taffeta, and satin. It is important to use a fabric that holds the pleats and fullness of the overskirt. The sheer yoke will need a stretch mesh for best results. You may wish to line the overskirt out of the same fashion fabric or choose a contrast for a different look. The bodice and under skirt can be lined with any poly or rayon lining.
This Liberty Jane® doll clothes pattern is designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl®

Fun and enjoyable as always!
I loved this pattern when I saw it. I've been sewing Liberty Jane patterns for a while and this one was perfect for my niece. I would recommend a new skill level of Expert. The pattern was pretty easy to follow but if you haven't sewed many formal dresses you will definitely be challenged.
What a beautiful gown this is! The entire dress is lined (except for the mesh portion of the bodice) so there are no exposed seams. It was time consuming because of the lining and zipper, but so worth every minute. My customer is thrilled, too!
