Lee & Pearl™ celebrate comic book heroes and villains — and a dash of 1950s Golden Age of Science Fiction awesomeness — with this suite of perfectly-fitted patterns for iconic character costumes.

Our AMAZON PRINCESS wardrobe features a 4-way stretch BODYSUIT with a sweetheart neckline and stretch mesh shoulder and sleeve piece cut-in-one for a strapless look. We've also included directions for a super-easy headband DIADEM to hold back your heroine's flowing locks while she fights for truth and justice. To help her in that fight, we've included directions to cut her a GOLDEN LASSO out of a length of doll-scaled rattail cord.

No superhero is complete without a supervillain, so we've put together a slinky CAT BURGLAR costume. The calf-length CATSUIT features a shaped hip seam to simulate a low-slung belt, a sweetheart neckline bodice and stretch mesh insert perfectly fitted to a high collar. For ultimate feline fabulosity, add a felt CAT EAR BEANIE, featuring 3-dimensional ears that are as easy to sew as they are impressive to look at.

Finally, our ALIEN QUEEN salutes classic illustrations from the 1950s Golden Age of Science Fiction with a high-collared SPACE SUIT, featuring contrasting GAUNTLET sleeves, collar and shaped panty. Finish her outfit with an easy lined CAPE, that fastens at the neck with a perfectly-shaped GORGET, and follow our recommendations to purchase and prepare your own doll-scale GOGGLES and RAY GUN!

Re-create these iconic looks, or mix-and-match the elements from each costume set to create your own characters. As you can see from our pictures, even a simple change of fabric colors and trim can turn our slinky Cat Burglar into an adorably "kawaii" sweet kitty cosplay outfit!

The cat ear beanie, cape, gorget and diadem are rated EASY, while the bodysuit, catsuit and spacesuit are rated INTERMEDIATE for curved seams on slippery fabric and some hand basting and hand finishing.

If you don't own a serger or you've worried about making garments like these out of 4-way stretch spandex material — worry no more! We've included our NO SERGER? NO PROBLEM! directions right in this pattern.

Starting in December 2018, that's Lee & Pearl Pattern 1038: The Gift Bow Front Dress for 18 Inch, 16 Inch and 14 1/2 Inch Dolls.

While scouting the fashion pages and runway reports for inspiration, our pattern designer was struck by one of the prettiest trends we’ve seen in a long time. You’ve probably noticed it too — all those soft ruffles and gathers, interesting pleats and seams, bows and motifs formed out of the fabric of the dress itself. It’s an organic kind of ornamentation, that allows over-the-top frills while still retaining the elegant restraint of a vintage couture gown.

Our Bow Front Dress explores this lovely trend with pleated raglan sleeves, a draped front panel and inverted center front pleats that mimic the look of a tied ribbon bow. Best of all, we designed this dress to be made from a single quarter yard or fat quarter of ordinary woven fabric — a dress designed around the use of pretty fabrics should allow you to use a wide variety of pretty fabrics!
