Downloadable Helen Smocked Doll Dress Pattern for 18 Inch | EtsyThe Helen Dress Pattern for 18-inch dolls has row after row of beaded smocking. It is smocked in the front only and the back bodice comes down to the last row of smocking. The gathered sleeves are embellished with ribbon striped with organdy and satin. The dress fabric is cut out from behind the ribbon so that you are able to see through the organdy. The back is fastened with Velcro. The dress can be made in batiste or broadcloth.

This pattern was designed using a pleater to make the pleats for the smocking. The pattern does not include instructions for pleating the fabric by hand to prepare it for smocking.
