This adorable 18 doll pattern was designed to be an exact copy of the regular Bubblegum Dress and Bubblegum Swing Dress. Matching outfits for dolly and her mommy are every little girl(tm)s dream! The Mini Bubblegum & Mini Bubblegum Swing is a basic shape that allows for a variety of embellishments and the use of your prettiest trims. Or use very bright and colourful fabrics that are a statement on their own. The Mini Bubblegum offers a slender everyday A-line, while the Mini Bubblegum Swing adds a whole new dimension to the dress by adding a full, gathered skirt with a contrast band to it. An everyday look, or a party look, all in one pattern. Because the bodice consists of multiple pieces in a fun wrap style, you can choose to use different matching or contrasting fabrics for the different pattern pieces. The dress has playful ties that lace on the side, but if you prefer not to have any ties on your children(tm)s toys, instructions are included to create a velcro closure instead, while achieving the same optical view of the ties on the side! Mix and match fabrics to your imagination! This dress can be made in woven fabric such as quilter(tm)s cotton, corduroy or lightweight denim. The best thing is that it does not require a lot of time nor fabric; inexpensive, fast and absolutely AMAZING presents for those precious girls in your life! The ribbon and bias tape headbands are included in this pattern; you can create one to go with every outfit dolly has, and you can make them out of scraps. We have added an inspirational gallery including pictures of various dresses made with this pattern at the very end of the tutorial to inspire you!
