Sew your own A Lil’ Bit Country: Dress, Top, Skirt & Belt Set for your 14.5-inch doll!

*Earn 60 Tillie Tokens when you purchase this pattern!*



Your 14.5-inch friend will be feeling at least “a lil’ bit country” with this ruffled pull-on dress featuring several variations.

Create the full dress in two different lengths, with or without a ruffle at the hem. Or if you prefer, stitch up separates. Included are two options for the top – one with a built-in elasticized ruffled waist and another slightly longer version with a straight hem, intended to be tucked in or belted. Other options include the simple pull-on skirt, which can be made with or without the ruffled hem.

Thanks to an elasticized waist and generous cut, dressing your doll is very easy … no closures needed! This downloadable PDF pattern set also includes two different belt patterns to accessorize your outfit – the Fabric Buckled Belt, which can be made with fabric or ribbon, and the Leather Snapped Belt, which conveniently snaps in the back.

Depending upon the variations chosen, this project goes together quickly and is suitable for confident beginner to intermediate-level sewists.

Also available sized for 18-inch dolls such as American Girl™.
