PRINTED Sewing Pattern / Ashes of Roses / Fits American Girl or Other 18" Dolls


A Farmcookies Original Sewing Pattern-- Ashes of Roses- a sewing pattern from historic America.

*****This listing is for a Printed Sewing Pattern, NOT the finished Dresses.*****

This pattern is intended for those with sewing experience and an intermediate skill level. It is an easy pattern however.

View 1 is a more formal gown, full length, with wider insertion lace straps, a satin sash and a hem band.

View 2 is an inch shorter, with contrasting lower skirt band edged in lace, longer straps for a lower cut neckline and a diagonal bodice onlay banded in bias trim. Both views feature bodice ruffles that extend to the waist in the back. As an alternate- cut skirt two inches shorter for an adorable sundress!

The printed pattern includes 9 pages of instructions with color illustrations and 1 page of pattern pieces. Directions are included for making both dresses. The pattern pieces are hand drafted; very minor adjustments may be needed; all pieces are clearly labeled for ease in use.

Pattern made in my smoke free home.

**This pattern is for your personal use and may not be shared, copied or sold. You may sell doll clothes made from this pattern if you recognize me as the designer in your listing.

Pattern will be mailed one business day after payment in an oversize flat envelope.
