Baby Doll Dress - Sewing Instructions


Here are the sewing instructions for the 12 to 13 inch baby doll dress. To see the pattern pieces Look Here.

Materials
1/2 yard cotton fabric
1 yard of 1/8 inch satin ribbon
matching thread
hook and eye or hook and loop dots for closing the back

All pattern pieces include a 1/4 inch seam allowance.

Start by sewing the dress front to the back at the shoulder seams and press the seams open. pin and stitch the neck facing to the neck line, don't press the hems open. Turn under the bottom edge of the facing 1/8 inch, twice and hem stitch. Stitch the short ends of the facing to the center back edges of the dress. Turn right side out.

Using a long basting stitch, gather the top of both sleeves and pin the sleeves to the dress, right sides facing, easing to fit. Stitch the shoulder seams.Hem the bottom edge of the sleeves and attach the ribbon to the outside of the sleeves, near the bottom edge, using tiny stitches. Stitch dress side seams and sleeve seams. Pin the dress back together, starting at the mark on the pattern and going down to the bottom. Stitch the seam and press the seam open. Hem the dress by turning up the bottom edge 1/4 inch, twice, and stitch in place. If you have enough ribbon you might want to add it around the bottom of the dress as you did with the sleeves. As another idea you might like to attach some gathered lace to the bottom of the dress, stitching it to the inside at the line where your hem stitches are.

Using about 10 to 12 inches of ribbon, tie a small bow and tack it to the center front of the dress.

Put either a hook and eye or a set of hook and loop dots at the back neck edges to close the dress.
