“Cecily is a quiet doll with impeccable taste. She’s subtle, understated, often silent in company...but don’t underestimate her. She will surprise you with her wit and quiet wisdom.”
This delicate, lovely little dress from Melody Valerie Couture is much like Cecily. Quiet. Understated. But it lacks nothing in the elegance department! This 18 inch doll clothes PDF pattern includes princess seams and a lovely panel of tucks to create a flattering silhouette, while the inside has a lining and bound seam allowances to pamper her. Understated, elegant, and becoming, the Cecily dress will make your 18 inch doll look and feel great without unduly drawing attention.
This dress will work beautifully in a lightweight sateen, linen, or rayon. The pink dress is made from a silk/cotton blend; the green sample is made from a mid-weight silk charmeuse.

I enjoyed making this garment. It allowed me to use many of the things from SWC. Made from silk from Thailand. Would love to send a picture but don’t know how.
I've tried to sew this pattern twice now. Not sure how you can get ten pleats on the front of this dress. I even went from 1/2 inch to around 1/4 inch and it still looked ridiculous in the front of the dress.
