California Collection - Darling Dresses, Knitting Patterns fit American Girl and other 18-Inch Dolls
Wonderful easy fun styles perfect for Spring and Summer, but will easily be year round wearable. Try the terrific ruffle "U" neck style dress, with a simple ruffle neck. This is perfect for your special Sunday dress, evening dinner dress, or a relaxing lunch out with friends! Has a clean look, yet you can alter it by adding ribbons and bows if you wish. Then there is the party dress with a "3-D" flower trimmed skirt! This is perfect to wear to weddings, graduations, birthday parties and other special occasions. You can knit your own colorful flowers (pattern included) to adorn the skirt, or sew on ready made satin flowers for a more formal look. The all white dress would make a great bridesmaid dress too! This style has a "vine like" headband that is ultra elegant! The headband, made in any color will go well with any of the dresses. Also there is a casual ribbed top dress, perfect to wear on an afternoon of lemonade with friends! Or something to pop on after a day at the beach.
All patterns are easy to follow, using Lion Brand Modern Baby yarn (a size 3 yarn), and knitting needles US # 6.
