Your 18-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 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.
For even more versatility, this pattern was designed to complement the Ruffled Romper, also by Matilda’s Closet. Combine your favorite skirt option from this pattern with the halter top from that pattern to create a sweet ruffled sundress! Or switch things around and use the pants pieces from that pattern with the ruffled top from this pattern for yet another fun summer look. You can even create a cute halter top with a ruffled waist!

Available in both print and downloadable PDF formats.
