Spring Holiday Dress Pattern


Here are pattern pieces to make Spring dresses for 18 inch dolls such as American Girl, Corolle, Gotz Precious Day Girl Dolls and similar body types. This pattern is free for your personal use but you may not use it commercially.

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

This pattern is my own design and is for your personal use. It may not be reproduced commercially.All pattern pieces include a 1/4 inch seam allowance and are shown on a 1/2 inch grid. To copy the pattern by hand you can create a 1/2 inch grid by measuring every half inch and making a pencil dot all the way down and across, on both sides of a piece of 8 1/2 by 11 inch paper. Then use your ruler or straight edge to connect the dots with your pencil. Then draw the pattern lines into each square of your grid, exactly as they are shown in my design.

Skirt Pattern

Cut fabric 25 inches wide and 6 inches long for skirt to fall just below knee.

This dress is shown in this fabric because of its seasonal design, but any small, floral pattern will work just fine. I like to use calico, or quilt fabrics whenever possible because the scale of the prints works particularly well with doll clothes.
