View A and View C have a scalloped edge trim and View B is made from gathered lace. Views A and B have bias tape trim, and directions are given for making your own bias trim or using packaged bias tape. View B is made from an eyelet fabric that has a finished lace edge. The dresses are embellished with a bow or purchased appliqué. The full skirt is gathered at the waist, and can be trimmed with a contrasting bias or the scallop trim. Dressmaker “secrets” are included for easy methods to make the scallop trim and buttonholes. The dress fastens down the back with either buttons or Velcro®.

Special Note – This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit a Kidz N Cats® Doll specifically and will not fit the standard 18 inch doll such as American Girl® Doll. A KNC doll is 18 inches tall but has a much slimmer hard plastic body. To view this pattern for American Girls click here. It is also available for A Girl for All Time dolls here.
