Your doll will be ready to beat the summer heat in her new cool and casual Sunshine Dress. It’s the perfect transition from summer sunshine to back to school.
The Sunshine Dress is a simple dress that is easy to sew. It will quickly become the staple in your doll’s wardrobe. With three design options (solid front, panel front, or princess seamed front), you can mix and match fabrics for a different look each time. The hook and loop closure in back offers easy on and off for little hands. 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.
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.

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!
