Princess seam dress pattern I designed for Gene.
For the wedding dress I just added a ruffle.
I made a new test of the pattern in 2011--
Here's the pdf pattern for download which contains the original jpg images all in one file so it's easy to print. Make sure the pdf prints at 100% and not "fit to page".
1/4" seams included.
Fold over the top edge of the front and stitch.
Sew side fronts to fronts, being very careful to get both sides of the front at even heights. Clip curves.
Sew backs to side backs and iron the pieces so far.
Sew shoulder seams.
Fold over neck edges to form a facing and stitch.
Fold over and hem sleeves, then gather sleeve caps and sew onto dress.
Sew up the sleeve seams and down the side seams of the dress.
Hem lower edge, then fold over back edges twice and try on the doll for fit. Add snaps or velcro.
