From nurse I ended up being housewife.All my years I love being creative.Writing short stories,poems etc.My late Mom was a professional knitter so I suppose I ve inherit some of her talents,Thanks to South African schooling those days it were an obligation to learn how to sew and knit at Primary school and early High School years.I made my own doll clothes and even knit my own dolls at 7-8 years with help of Mom of course..Being at home now I have all the time to develop my talent.I started by sewing my own clothes then my teenage daughter came up with such complicated designs.She actually pushed me to create and sew dresses for her that I thought I will never be able to do.My kids has then encourage me to open my own Online Shop which Im doing now with the help of a special friend , Liese and her sister who gave me so much support . Without their help my dreams would have never become true to have my own online shop. .Hoping that I will bring 100% satisfaction to my clients.I Love Feedback .Thanks for Reading.View all patterns by designer (56) »
This is a sewing pattern to make a summer sleeveless dress for your American Girl Dolls and other 18'' Dolls with similar measurements.
1/2 yard main fabric ( more than enough )
Contrast fabric : If you use it just for hem + waist bands and bow = 1/4 yard
If you use for lining , hem + waist bands and bow = about 1/2 yard
2 small hooks for back fastening , but if you prefer a overlap you can use velcro instead. I have use the hooks.
small piece of viseline ( fusible interfacing ) + elastic length 1.25'' for bow.
Cotton is preferable but taffeta and satin fabric will also give good results .
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
The dolls pictured is Felicity an American Girl Doll , Battat and also South African Girl Dolls
