So now that many of you have purchased your copy of the Everyday Playdress your daughters might be asking for their dolls to have their own dress too. And now they can! Here I will be sharing the steps and free doll pattern pieces for an 18″ doll coordinating dress.
This is a simple and quick sew. No serger needed, in fact when I did this tutorial I only used my sewing machine. Use whatever you’re comfortable with.
- Approx. 1/4yd fabric. I recommend knit but since this dress closes in the back you could use wovens. You will need to finish your seams differently than I am showing here though. Knits don’t fray so I’ve chosen to just stitch down instead of coverstitching or serging and stitching.
- 2″ of velcro
- Thread, scissors, pins, iron

1. Cut your pieces:
7. Align two bodice pieces together so you have a complete bodice and baste the arm scythes.
And you’re done!
