These 18 inch doll dress and hair accessories are so sweet & easy to make! They will fit American Girl Dolls. The sleeveless dress can be made in three styles - a plain dress, a dress with a belt and fabric appliqus around the neck and armholes (it looks like a jumper with a shirt underneath), and a dress with a collar and a bib appliqu. Instructions are also included to make three dimensional flowers that can be sewn to the dress, elastic belt, and elastic or ribbon headbands. Cotton fabric was used for samples - Specialty fabrics like taffeta, satin, etc can be used to make fancy dresses and hair accessories. Double fold bias tape was used to finish neck & armhole edges. Velcro fasteners are sewn to the center back opening of the dress so it will be easy for small children to dress and undress their doll. This eleven page PDF e-pattern includes full size patterns, detailed materials list, clear instructions written in English, and step-by-step photographs. Finished doll clothing & hair accessories made from this pattern can be sold in limited quantities. No mass production allowed.
