Inspired by vintage nurse uniforms, this special outfit was designed to thank and honor nurses everywhere. The blue dress has a white collar and cuffs, and it closes in the back with hook-and-loop tape. The pinafore features a ribbon cross embellishment on the bodice (a machine embroidery design is included to use in place of the ribbon cross, if desired). You can also embroider a 2020 date on the skirt hem using one of your machine’s built-in fonts, if you wish. Both the pinafore bodice and the doll mask are made with piqué and lined with white fabric, and both tie in the back for closure. This keepsake dress fits most popular 18″ dolls.
NOTE: A matching child’s nurse dress is featured in the Autumn 2020 issue of Classic Sewing magazine.
