This dress is made to fit American Girl and other 18" dolls.

Josefina is modeling a dress and Pelisse from a soon-to-be-released pattern by Thimbles and Acorns. As a project consultant working with the pattern development, I made this beautiful ensemble which showcases the wonderful design talent of Shari at Thimbles and Acorns.

The dress is a representation of the Regency Era style - high bodice, puff sleeves, and a long, flowing skirt, flat in the front and gently gathered in the back. It is made from a soft butter yellow eyelet overlay with a lined bodice and skirt in a coordinating soft broadcloth. A length of yellow picot ribbon is included to tie around the bodice ending in a bow at the back with long tails, if desired. The dress fastens with invisible snaps sewn under mother-of-pearl buttons.

The Pelisse is the star of this ensemble. The design is simply fabulous! It is made with a deeper shade of yellow Kona cotton. All but the sleeves are lined with the same soft broadcloth as the dress. Design features include 3/4 length sleeves, a collar inset into a V shape at the back, two generous pleats at the skirt back, and closes in the front just under the dress bodice with a small tab belt and two floral buttons with working buttonholes. The pattern includes special couture methods of construction using hand sewing for a seamless finish on the inside.

I have also included three flowers and a bow on a bobby pin to adorn the hair, if desired.

Proudly made in the U.S.A! This outfit was sewn by me in my smoke-free/pet-free home. Seams have been serged for a professional finish. Edges that might fray have been sealed with a preventative.

This listing is for the dress, Pelisse, length of ribbon, and flowers and bow for the hair only. Josefina and any of her other accessories are not included.

Shipping is in a First Class box with delivery confirmation within the U.S. only.
