Sunshine Dress Sewing Pattern for 14.5 inch Dolls
This dress is ready for summer fun, and easily transitions your doll to a great back to school look!
The Sunshine Dress is an easy to sew pattern to make a dress in three variations. Choose a solid pieced front, or try a straight contrast panel or pretty princess seams. With a hook and loop closure in back, it’s easy on and off for little hands to dress their own dolls. This pattern is also a perfect starter pattern for girls that want to learn to sew for their dolls, or for more experienced seamstresses to make a basic doll wardrobe with lots of options, although the smaller size will make this a little more tricky.
Skill level: Easy
This classic but simple dress is very easily made from a quarter yard of fabric (quilter’s fat quarters work great!) in a woven cotton or other lightweight fabric. Mix and match your fabrics and trims for unlimited design options.
Your instant download file will include full color photos, full sized pattern pieces and directions. Just print and sew! You can see more on my blog: www.ohsewkat.com.
You are always welcome to sell anything you make from my patterns. I appreciate it if you list Oh Sew Kat! as the pattern designer in online listings.
This pattern was specifically designed and tested on 14.5 inch dolls such as WellieWishers by American Girl ®. My dolls have a waist measurement of 6 inches. Please measure and test the fit on your own doll as there are many on the market and it may not fit the same on all of them. Oh Sew Kat! is not affiliated with American Girl ® No endorsement is implied. This pattern will fit Hearts for Hearts dolls but may need an adjustment to hook and loop placement. It is also available for 18 inch dolls like American Girl and 16 inch dolls like Disney Animators’ in my shop.
This listing is for the digital file PDF pattern. My doll, her clothes, shoes, and accessories are not included. Check out my blog to see helpful tips and design ideas at www.ohsewkat.com and share your creations using hashtag #ohsewkat.

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!
