Faraway Downs Pattern Remix
Sometimes I like making separates so little girls have more outfit options for their 18″ dolls. See?! Josephina is modeling the top with jeans, giving her a casual look.
This top features a collar and gathered sleeve with a ruffle. There are 3 buttons down the front; but it opens in back with Velcro. I finished the hem with a ruffle to match the sleeves.
The Faraway Downs pattern isn’t a super speedy dress to make, but it’s not difficult either. It just has a lot of steps. I made an Easter dress with it earlier this year.
The bodice has 4 panels in front & four in back. When sewing the Faraway Downs pattern, choose your fabric wisely. I try to use fabric with a smaller print for doll clothes; but I couldn’t resist getting one more project out of these floral scraps. Next time I’ll choose a print that will blend a little smoother at the panel seams.
My other contribution to this giveaway is a tween style outfit for 18″ dolls, and includes jeans, a v-neck tee, and infiniti scarf.
