Dressing for the Fall: Spring Shine Dress in Batik

The SpringShine Dress is very basic, with pretty, flutter sleeves and a gathered skirt. You can also make it as a top or without the sleeves as well. The placket front is just for looks- no button holes required. I like to glue crystals on doll dresses to give them some extra sparkle. Be sure to take into account the age of anyone who might play with your doll dresses when adding buttons and crystals.
