Pattern Description:

The Anneke dress is a sweet Euro-inspired country-style dress for 18 inch dolls and 15 inch soft bodied baby dolls.

View A has a three tiered ruffle skirt, Peter Pan collar and puffed sleeves.

View B is a shirt dress with a straight skirt and straight short sleeves edged with ruffles.

Both views have optional waist ties and casings and there is a choice of a placket opening in the center front or a mock placket if preferred. The waist ties can be replaced with ribbons.

All the dresses fasten in the back with Velcro strips or snaps/buttons.

This pattern is ideal for using up scraps to mix and match fabrics and offers a great opportunity to use plenty of trimmings.

I hope you have as much fun putting your own creative spin on this pattern as I had designing it.

Excellent Lovely and well-fitting  November 29, 2013

I made view B, the shirt dress. Everything fits very well. I love the slight waist gathering with the side ties. (I did modify the ruffles to be 1/4" longer than the pattern calls for; I like wide ruffles!) I highly recommend this pattern by Genniewren!

Nowadays I design doll clothes patterns and I digitize designs for machine embroidery ...
