Here's the perfect summer dress for your doll's next party, barn dance, barbecue or other special event!
Featuring a button-front collared shirt with attached skirt and optional overlay, there's no limit to the outfits you can create with this PDF pattern. Keep it simple by matching the top and bottom fabrics and simply omitting the overlay ... or dress it up by mixing fabrics, colors and prints, ranging from cotton and lightweight denim to satin, tulle and lace!
Skirt overlay options include a simple all-one-length layer or a trendy high-low design. Add one front patch pocket, both pockets or none at all for even greater customization. Finish it off with a simple buckled belt using the included instructions and your outfit is complete!
As an added bonus, a special design detail allows for easy dressing - only the back of the shirt is attached to the skirt. After buttoning or snapping up the shirt-front, simply tuck in the lower front tabs into the elasticized skirt!

love this pattern, enjoyed making it, I have made it both ways one with the netting and one without, both in the 4th of July colors. I'm sure you all will enjoy making it.
This pattern is so fun! There are quite a few options so you do get quite a bit included in the pattern. I do believe that if you are a confident beginner and are good at following instructions, you could definitely do the basic dress without the overlay. The dress is designed with very clever front tabs, making it a snap to get the dress on and off your doll! Another winner from Matilda's Closet!
Some many options, from basic to more advanced. You could make them as easy or advanced as you want with different fabrics. I did the basic dress but, made the skirt out of nubuck and the top out of bandana print cotton for a western look. This will be a great one to let your creative juices flow. Thanks Matilda's Closet
