Happy Friday everyone!!
This morning my pattern Winter's Dance Skating Dress released! This PDF pattern is for both the 18" doll and the shorter baby doll style dolls, like the Bitty Baby doll. This dress is a vintage style ice skating dress from the 1950's era. I really love the designs from that period of time!
The dress is fully lined and has a circle skirt that is sewn in two pieces, easy for a directional print fabric to used. The lining of the skirt "peeks" out form under the top skirt some so it is a great place to add a fun color to the dress. The bodice of the dress has darts as well to add really lovely fit and details to the bodice. The sleeves have a slight gather to the top and the dress is finished of with some fun trim that is on the bodice and the skirt as well. The pattern includes the trim stitching guild as well.
For the red and pink dresses I used a flannel fabric for a warm look. I like the weight the fabric has as well to help hold the skirt's shape better at the bottom.
This pattern looks really good in a quilter's cotton as well. I even added a fun bubble trim to miss Elsa's dress.
