American Girl Type Dolls - Spring Dresses


We all love to have a new outfit for Easter, or any Spring holiday. Your dolls would also love a pretty, new dress. This dress pattern will fit 18 inch American Girl, other American historical dolls, Corolle Dolls, Gotz Precious Day Girl Dolls, and other dolls with similar size body types.


This is a photo of Julia, my Gotz Precious Day 18 inch doll, in a dress that is perfect for Easter, or any Spring holiday because the fabric is covered in Easter Eggs.

Materials
- 1/2 yard of fabric, the design of the fabric I used required that all pattern pieces go in the same direction, you may need less if this is not an issue.
- 12 inches of 3 to 4 inch wide, pre-gathered lace for the collar.
- 1 yard of 2 1/2 inch wide flat lace with holes down the center that a ribbon can be woven into.
- 2 yards of 1/4 inch wide satin ribbon.
- matching thread.
- two sets of sticky dots

Before you start to make your dress you'll want to have the lace trim for the waist ready to use. The lace that I used has a line of holes down the center that are about 1/4 inch wide. I wove the satin ribbon in and out of every other hole down the entire length of the lace. Then I gathered the lace to fit around the waist of the doll and tied it in place after the dress was on her. With this technique you can use the pretty "belt" on other outfits as well!
