“So easy to sew it is a great pattern.”

The doll Dresses are so sweet and easy to make! They will fit 18” dolls, including American Girl Dolls. Instructions are included to make the dresses in four different styles – princess dress (blue & white), dress with separate bodice and gathered skirt (purple & large flower pattern), shift dress with gathered ruffle (turquoise & white stripe), and straight shift dress (pink & white damask). Ribbons are attached to the shoulders of the dresses and tied into bows (dresses are finished similar to our Doll Shirts & Skirts pattern and our Strawberry & Watermelon Set for 18 Inch Dolls). Sample dresses are made from cotton fabrics.

We sell a doll hat pattern separately that coordinates with all the dresses.

This ten page PDF e-pattern includes full size patterns, detailed materials list, clear instructions written in English, step-by-step photographs.

*Note: These are downloadable pattern and instructions for making doll clothes.
