I had some fabric left over from the girls' Easter dresses, so I decided to make matching dresses for their new American Girl dolls. They loved this!
For this dress I actually made two because I am a perfectionist like that. It really took hardly any fabric, though, and I came up with some things to make it better.
First of all, the bodice and straps are all one piece:
For the back, first I basted the ribbon loops into the back pieces...
...then sewed the straps in along the tops like so...
This was much more efficient. I whipped the second dress up in less than an hour.
Everything else in the dress construction follows the Twirly Lace Dress Tutorial found HERE. If you would like, for your own personal, home use only, here are the patterns that I used:
(Please do not be rude and just copy this pattern to sell it to others. Thanks!)
