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 pattern went together quickly. I've used it three time and each time I'm thrilled with the results!!
Haven't used it yet but will be shopping for fabric this weekend. Studied the directions and it will be great to make.
I had good luck making this dress. Many options to use to make different dresses. They are very cute on the dolls
