The Partytime Sweetheart Dress is a great choice for a garden party, wedding, or birthday celebration. The sweetheart neckline provides a feminine flair, and the half puff sleeves add an eye-catching detail. The double row of tucks on the skirt is a lovely detail that helps provide just a bit of pouf to the skirt section. You may choose to leave the skirt section off and make a dainty Partytime Sweetheart Top that works perfectly with a pair of jeans or a separate skirt. This fun design by dKinley designs is best done in cotton woven fabric. It’s perfect for a small floral or calico print. Not recommended for knits. The bodice section is lined. Back closure instructions are given for hook and loop tape, but with the 1/2” seam allowance at the center back, snaps or an invisible zipper could be used if desired.
This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl®.

I have never made a Sweetheart neckline before and I wasn't sure I could, but this pattern made it really easy with simple to follow instructions. Made both a blouse and the dress and it came out adorable. I didn't have to adjust anything for the thicker body OG doll modelling it in the picture.
This pattern was a joy to do. The instructions were very well written. And the dress came out great. I had made the dress and top.
I really like this pattern. I have made 4 different dresses from it and have a few more cute out to make. I’m going to try to make an evening dress from it too. Thank you. It’s a great pattern.
