The best thing about the Cute n Casual pattern for 18" dolls is you can make all the pieces look cute n casual or you can make them look cute and dressy simply by changing the fabrics you use and/or adding embellishments like ribbon, ric rac, lace, buttons or any other trims and embellishments you happen to have on hand.
The top of the bodice would even look great with a little embroidery and even a few beads would look wonderful too. The Cute n Casual designs are great little basics that you can let your imagination run wild and create a multitude of looks simply by mixing and matching fabrics and prints. Your doll can have a whole wardrobe of a variety of outfits using this one simple pattern.
