Sweet 70s Dress 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

4 reviews   |  

Take a step back in time when you make this classic 70s era dress with this beautifully designed pattern from Keepers Dolly Duds. This drop waist dress with a gracefully flared skirt style comes in two variations.

View A has a pointed collar, shaped sleeve cuffs, and center tie.

View B features simple short sleeves, a shaped collar, and a row of decorative buttons down the front.

The 1970 era dresses both fasten in the back with three buttons and side ties that tie in neat bow in the back to provide some adjustment for dolls with varying waistlines.

Bonus: This pattern also includes three additional collar designs that can be used in place of the two original collar styles!

This seventies inspired PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®. Pattern #KDD-11

    The pattern was well put together and fit my AG doll perfectly. The instructions and illustrations were clear and I had no problems with any part of it. Sewed up very cute.
