This is the free Portia Party Dress for 18-inch dolls. It’s a quick, easy and beautiful sew! There is a full version of the dolls’ Portia Party Dress that can be made in 4 lengths and in either woven or knit fabric with many more options. The knit and woven versions each have slightly different instructions and pattern pieces. The free knit version is more form fitting in its cut and just pulls on over the head. The woven version has more ease in the cut and has an invisible zipper in the side seam.
