Lily of the Valley Dress Pattern
Lily of the Valley Dress
Treat your doll to this unique blend of corners and curves — from the box pleats to the sinuous yoke sections, Lily of the Valley is a frock for the doll who likes a bit of spice in her wardrobe. It’s hard to beat a classic ribbon bow, though; and when you pair it with some fabulous buttons, chances are you’ve got a dress your doll will turn to time and again.
Lily of the Valley was engineered for the cleanest, smoothest finish possible — despite the six sloping pleats, which begin lower in front than in back for the most flattering line, the skirt has a minimum of seams. A partial lining floats down from the neckline to just below the waist, while strips of self-fabric bind the armholes. The dress closes up the back with an invisible zipper.
- 1/3 yard fabric
- 1/4 uard lining fabric
- Scraps for contrast
- Six buttons – 1/4″ to 3/8″
- One 7-9″ invisible zipper
- 1-2/3 yard of 1/2″ wide ribbon
Pattern Details: This is an Intermedaite level sewing pattern.
This dress works well in a fine-wale corduroy, but you could also use a lightweight wool or a fun printed cotton. We suggest a lightweight polyester, rayon, or cotton muslin for the lining.
