So now that many of you have purchased your copy of the Everyday Playdress, your daughters may be asking for their dolls to have their own dress too. And now they can– for FREE!


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. See the listed supplies below to get the free doll dress pattern. You will download this pattern to your computer and print it out right at home. This doll dress pattern prints out on three 8.5″ x 11″ sheets of paper.

  • 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
