Every doll likes to go to a party! Stitch up a simple dress with an elastic, gathered neckline and pretty puff sleeves to make her feel like a princess! Choose the simple skirt (with or without lace or trim) or try 3 tiers of twirl fun. The easy, open back makes it simple for little hands to dress their dolls. This pretty dress is quick and and simple to sew! Your doll will be the hit of the party this spring or summer, or choose holiday fabrics for Christmas or Valentine’s Day parties too! Have fun mixing and matching fabrics and textures to create a different look each time.

This pattern was specifically designed and tested on 14.5 inch dolls such as WellieWishers™ dolls made by American Girl. This pattern will fit Hearts for Hearts dolls, but will have a little looser fit, which is often eased by adjusting the hook and loop placement. Please measure and test the fit on your own doll as there are many dolls on the market and it may not fit the same on all of them. Oh Sew Kat! is not affiliated with Mattel nor American Girl®.

Do you sew? Do you want to? Does your daughter ask you to make new clothes for her dolls? Or would she like to learn herself?
This is where I was with my daughter. She wanted me to make so many things I couldn’t keep the list up! I decided it was time for her to do it herself. (9-11 years old). I created some simple patterns, based on simple designs that would teach her, step by step, how to make them herself. (But do not underestimate the power of a simple design! A new fabric, a shirt underneath, a few buttons on front, a ruffle added…you can create a whole wardrobe and lots of unique looks with just a few basic pattern pieces.) With a few scraps of fabric, and a pattern printed on your home computer, you and your “girl” will be making her dolls into fashionistas!
