If you like vintage and you like cute you are going to love these dresses and coats inspired by little girls' patterns of the early 1960s.

There are 8 patterns included in the files. You will find dresses with round necks and wide necks, high waists and yokes, 3/4 sleeves with flared ruffles or elastic, fitted short sleeves, a jumper dress and a petticoat dress. There are two coats for outer wear and a cute boxy jacket with a piping edging. 

The designs are all of intermediate difficulty to sew.

Recommended fabrics:
The dresses are best made with light weight fabrics like patchwork cotton.
The coats can be made using patchwork cotton or medium weight fabrics like velvet, light wool or cotton sateen.

This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18” dolls like American Girl®
The designs fit on my vintage AGD Kit and also my 2 Our Generation dolls. I recommend checking waist lines before making the designs for the dolls with bigger waists. They may not fit on the really early AGD that have bigger shoulders.

Supplies Needed:
Fabric - Light to medium weight fabrics and lining fabric

Notions - Small button, gathered lace trim, rick rack braid
