Fashion Friday

One pattern......many dresses!

This is my favorite dress to make for the ladies.  I
am not creative (or patient) enough to draft my
own patterns so rely on commercial ones, both
vintage and modern.   This is actually a somewhat
modern pattern (1998).

It fits all of my dolls except for the belly
button ones.  I think it is drafted nicely
and the instructions well written. 

I have plans to make the bathing suit and over-
skirt someday, too!


  1. Chris, I have a bunch of patterns, but only a few I actually use because they are easier to use. This dress pattern is nice.

    1. Janainah, I like this pattern because the bodice has a facing and I am terrible at hemming around necklines. I too have lots of patterns but only use a few. I am trying to broaden my horizons and use other ones.
