Is your doll feeling groovy? The Good Vibrations Sixties Dress is the perfect pattern for a feel-good blast to the past! The princess-seamed dress offers three variations that combine together to create many different looks: a school dress with a wide collar, a graceful square-necked dress with bell-shaped sleeves, and a minimalist-style shift that can showcase graphic prints and color blocking. One pattern can create a wardrobe for all her special occasions! Additional features include two sets of cutting lines to accommodate older, larger-sized dolls, as well as newer, slimmer models. Three sleeve options and two neckline variations offer many ways to create unique and versatile combinations. Now pull on those GoGo Boots and start sewing!

Another great pattern and instructions. Fits the AG doll perfectly. So many options. I highly recommend this pattern as it does not disappoint.
this was yet another easy and cute pattern to do. I have bought a lot of patterns form this company and have been pleased with every one.
Yeah for a cute 1960's dress! My Melodie will be very happy to have this dress. It is a very cute dress with many options. You can have a collar or no collar, no sleeves, short sleeves or bell sleeves and pocket tabs or no pocket tabs. I love having options that way I can make the dress over and over and get different looks. Thanks for such a great patten.
What an excellent pattern! So easy and quick to sew up. There are so many variations possible with this cute little number! I did the first one sleeveless with contrast top stitching for a great sheath look from those princess seams. I paired with the Forever 18 inches Curved Cardigan for a great set look. Now I have some funky solid blue and blue/white heart material for a long sleeved version that I am sure will be a great hit! Beautiful pattern, easy for play as well.
