Wedgewood and Ballerina Bolero Bundle Pattern for 18" Dolls

  |  

Your 18-inch doll will look adorable in this gorgeous Vintage style dress, charming crochet Bowler Hat and beautiful lacy crochet Bolero from Little Miss Muffett.
Although not historically correct, the designs are based on various examples of Children’s Clothing from the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s.
The Dress is made to look like a blouse and skirt with a lined Bodice which has a round scoop neckline and little fold back Cap Sleeves. The mid-calf length full-gathered Skirt is finished with braid and ribbon attached just above the shallow Ruffle. The Dress closes with hook and loop tape at Center Back.
The Patchwork Apron is great for using up fabric pieces too big to throw away, yet too small to make anything specific. The patchwork squares, which form the Apron, are framed by Ricrac, while gathered Eyelet Lace borders the curved outer Apron edge. Long Waist Ties finish the Apron.

Included is an adorable crochet patterned Bowler Hat which uses fingering weight Cotton Yarn and is done in the Amigurumi-style of crochet which uses basic stitches.

Also included in this bundle is a beautiful lacy crochet Bolero which uses fine cotton yarn and is worked in Filet Crochet, the ‘Ballerina Bolero’ is made all-in-one and is edged with a broad DC Cluster border while the Sleeves are edged with a single row of DC Clusters. The Bolero neck ties are finished with small flowers with pearl centers.

The Wedgewood and the Ballerina Bolero patterns are also available individually.

This easy intermediate PDF sewing and crochet bundle pattern by Little Miss Muffett is designed to fit 18” soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®.
