This versatile dress pattern goes together quickly. It's easy to create different looks by varying fabric, sleeve length, and skirt length. Make the above the knee dress length in a fancy fabric, or add lace and you've got a special occasion dress. Choose a playful knit, a shorter length, and leggings for a cute birthday party outfit, or get ready for the outdoors in the shirt length and jeans.
The Tri-City Knit has a curved empire waist for a flattering look and hook and loop tape in back. The pattern includes 3 length variations (above the knee, mini, and long t-shirt), and 3 sleeve length variations (long, three-quarter, and short). Mix and match to create, create, create!

The Tri-City dress for the 14.5 dolls was very easy to put together. The results are adorable. My hint to those that will buy this pattern.... You will be tempted to buy a really thin knit. The really thin knit is harder to work with. The non see through knit works up better.
This is such a fun pattern with lots of options to expand your 14” doll’s wardrobe. It sews up fast and the result is adorable. It’s a perfect pattern for the whimsical Wellie Wishers, and looks great on Hearts4Hearts dolls, too.
loved it - I have made it three times already
Easy to follow instructions and turned out very cute!
