Waikiki Waves Dress 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

2 reviews   |  

Inspired by the aqua blue waters and the surf-sized waves of Waikiki, this closely-fitted dress, by FROG Princess Fashions sweeps in and out with a princess-seamed bodice that sports contrasting front-to-back in-seam ruffles and a flared skirt with contrasting godets.

Made either sleeveless or with flutter sleeves, the dress is equally suited for island sight-seeing or a luau. Finish the hem in a modern mini length or the pictured knee length with a lightweight cotton or cotton blend fabric or lightweight knits. The back has a hook and loop closure.

This versatile design features endless options for embellishment. Four free machine embroidery hibiscus designs for bodice, hem, and sleeves are offered on the Pixie Faire Machine Embroidery site.

Bonus hibiscus flower craft pattern and instructions are included with this pattern for further embellishing the outfit. Additional ideas are included on the "From the Designer's Desk" page!

What could be cuter for your 18” doll’s warm weather excursions? Make one or several in all versions!

    Waikiki dress

    Haven't used it yet, still cleaning sewing room but overall I love the Pixie Faire patterns, sell allot of outfits made from them and recommend the Pixie Faire to my doll groups!

    Okay with a change

    The skirt and bodice princess seams and godets went together quickly and easily, however the inserted ruffles just looked odd, so I took them out and used the ruffles to make flutter sleeves. MUCH better.
