This Glamour Girl sewing pattern has been designed especially to fit Journey Girl ® dolls
The Glamour Girl dress has the option to be reversible with all seams fully enclosed. With the Glamour Girl pattern you can mix n match the 2 different bodice variations and the 2 skirt variations and create a collection of beautiful dresses and even a wonderful wedding dress simply by using some luxurious fabrics. Best of all they’re quick and easy to sew.
There’s step by step instructions and photos to guide you all the way through the construction process. There’s also a summary of instructions you can print to help save on paper and ink.
You can make each dress look glamorous or you can make them look more casual simply by changing the fabrics and the way you choose to embellish each garment. I’ve designed these dresses to have classic clean simple lines that look great just as they are, or you can use your own creativity and have fun embellishing either the bodice, the skirt or the whole dress from the inside to the outside.
The high low skirt is a great opportunity for you to have fun and go subtle or go wild with what ever fabrics you decide. Pretty prints or luxurious fabrics can be used for the skirt lining and make a fabulous feature of this stunning glamorous design with the way the skirt cascades and shows off each layer of fabric.
