This European style dress comes in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16.
The Dora Dress has a square neck and empire style bodice. The full, paneled skirt can be left plain, or finished with a ruffle which adds extra twirl factor. There is an optional apron which is sewn in with the skirt. The back bodice is fastened with buttons, but snaps can be used if preferred.
The pattern has plenty of scope for customisation by mixing prints, plaids, stripes and plain fabrics and adding trims or machine embroidery.
The pattern has step by step photo instructions and includes measurement charts, fabric requirements and cutting layouts.
A matching doll dress pattern is available.

I've been sewing, knitting, crocheting and embroidering all my life. I love making up my own designs and dressing dolls and teddy bears. For many years I made artist teddy bears and sold them under the name Ninie-Bears. I made over 500 bears that were sold all over the world including USA, Switzerland and Japan. Nowadays I design doll clothes patterns and I digitize designs for machine embroidery too.
My doll patterns fit the popular 18 inch soft bodied dolls such as the American Girl Doll, Gotz Precious Day series, Mme Alexander, Our Generation and Springfield dolls. Some of the patterns also fit the Bitty Baby and Bitty Twins dolls. If in doubt, please ask! All the patterns are tested extensively before being offered for sale.
