Rosa Dress knitting pattern for American Girl dolls. This beautifully feminine cable dress fits 18 inch dolls with similar body measurements.
This tailored dress is destined to be your doll's favorite. She will look romantically beautiful and girly, demure and strong at the same time. Cable and lace, though each other's opposites, are combined here in a wining design that shows the beauty of the doll and the beauty of your stitch equally well.
A-line midi length dress with long sleeves and back zipper closure. Worked from bottom up, flat, in one piece. Narrow lace trim is attached by hand.
