As a kid, I hated that my doll clothes closed with velcro. After a few weeks they were always gunked up with cat hair, doll hair, fuzz, and whatever else found its way to the velcro. So I wanted to create clothes that had real world methods of closure. So, The Katie Dress has a zipper back! This pattern is wonderful for beginners. Never put in a zipper? Don't fret! I'll walk you through it with full color photos and detailed instructions. Share your finished Katie Dress on Instagram and be sure to tag me (@sewlikemymom) so I can enjoy them, too!
