More information about the pattern:
The 1880 Mary and Laura Dress For 16 and 18 Inch Dolls: Born in 1867, Laura Ingalls Wilder had the privilege of witnessing a whole period of American history; the frontier, the woods, the Indian country of the great plains, the frontier towns, the building of railroads in wild, unsettled country, homesteading and farmers coming in to take possession. Later in her life, she began recording these memories in her classic “Little House on the Prairie” books, preserving a first hand account of those significant years in American History. The “Mary and Laura” dresses are a reproduction of the dresses the girls wore in a picture taken around 1880, the year recorded so vividly in her book “The Long Winter”.
Now your 16" and 18" doll can dress as Mary or Laura in this replica of the Ingalls' dress' by Thimbles and Acorns This pattern includes instructions for an overdress, an underskirt, and a hand stitched hankie to tuck in the side pocket.
