The Scalloped-Yoke Dress pattern was inspired by an adorable Mid-1950's child's dress. The dress pattern has a high yoke, with a scalloped yoke overlay and lining. The puffed-sleeves are gathered with elastic. Bloomers and a lined Scalloped Brim Bonnet complete the outfit. Add a lot of lace trim to dress it up or just a little for everyday wear. The Scalloped Yoke also has a nice place to add a small embroidered design.

This was such a beautiful dress for my granddaughter to put on her baby doll. The directions were very easy to follow and the dress made up just as pictured. I’ll be making more of this dress in the near future. Thank you
I have made a lot of dresses for dolls.I am not an expert by any means. But I consider myself a good seamstress. This was an difficult pattern to follow. I had a lot of trouble with the hat. I have done scallops before. But these seemed even more difficult. I embroidered a design on the front bodice. But when I went to put on the collar it covered up the design. So I had to leave the collar off. The directions were difficult to follow on the lining of the bodice. I had to keep looking at the pictures to see if I was doing it right. The elastic in the sleeves was especially hard. I tried it the way the pattern was written. I almost ruined that sleeve. So I went back to my old way of doing elastic. This outfit turned out really cute. But it was time consuming and tedious.
Just great loved the finished product.
