Summer - Fun Dresses - doll knitting pattern
DOLL MEASUREMENTS : Designed to fit 18’’ soft bodied dolls and also a perfect fit for the 18’’ Gotz Hannah dolls .
DESIGNER’S NOTES : This pattern includes 2 really little fun dresses to knit . I called it fun because the pattern stitch on the skirt looks really cute both on the wrong as well as the right side so I have decided to create 2 dresses using both sides . To add an extra touch to the pattern I have added panties and a hair tie . Both dresses work flat with a back seam and 3 buttons from the waist upwards .
Suitable for intermediate
