This pattern is just in time for your dolls to go back to school in style. This versatile little dress is designed to fit Waldorf dolls, with chest measurements of 11-13″ such Bamboletta . The pattern can be combined in different ways for a wide variety of looks. There are three different versions of the puff sleeve, and three different bodice styles.
All the dresses have a gathered skirt and puff sleeves. They can be made with or without the peter pan collar. View A has a full puff sleeve that is gathered with elastic, and a curved “bib” that can be pin-tucked or flat. View B has a center panel on the bodice that can be edged with lace, rick rack or piping, and has a puff sleeve with a narrow binding on the lower edge. View C has a center panel that can be cut on the bias, and is especially effective with a stripe or plaid fabric. The puff sleeve on view C has a wide cuff that is edged with piping, and there are also directions for making the contrast bias band on the hem.
The pattern pieces are drawn with a CAD program, and include highly detailed step-by-step instructions with pictures to guide you through the sewing process. Many variations in body size can be accommodated with minor modifications or simply by adjusting the closure placement.
