There is a two year old birthday girl in the family and thanks to older cousins, she is a fan of 18 inch dolls. So for her birthday she got a knock off American Girl Doll and I made a few outfits for it. This green colonial doll dress inspired me to make a similar dress for the grand daughter.
Doll dress was made using McCall's Craft pattern 3627.
Girl's dress is from an old Simplicity 7643. I modified the sleeve by moving the elastic from the end of the sleeve to about 2 inches from the end, creating the ruffle.
I used embroidery floss for a hand sewn pink top stitching and accented with pink flower buttons.
