Extra Large PRINTED Sewing Pattern / BODICE BASICS for American Girl or other 18" Dolls


A Farmcookies Designs Sewing Pattern BODICE BASICS.

This Extra Large pattern, totaling 20 pages, offers a standard bodice with multiple variations. You can make over 30 different dresses from this one pattern that features 7 different bodice onlays, 3 different sleeves, and 4 different collars.

Embroidery designs are not included due to copyright laws but pre-embroidered panels for you to use for your collars and onlays are available in another listing.

PLEASE READ: This pattern is for the seamstress with enough experience that she doesn't need step by step pictures to complete a dress. Although pictures are given for each collar, onlay and sleeve variation, directions to complete the dress itself at the end of the pattern are in narrative form without pictures. That said, if you have ANY of my other picture patterns you can use those pictures to construct your dress without any problem. Any questions please Convo me for more information.

*****This listing is for a Sewing Pattern, NOT finished dresses.*****

This pattern is intended for those with sewing experience ; it is an easy pattern however.

This pre-printed version of the pattern includes 11 pages of instructions with color illustrations and 9 pages of pattern pieces. All pieces are clearly labeled for ease in use.

Pattern will be mailed to you in a flat envelope the next business day after purchase.
