Party Dress for Bitty Baby


I intended to make a new dress for my Annie Doll. After the dress was finished I tried it on several of my dolls and discovered that it also fits on my Bitty Baby, since she also needed a new party dress, I decided to write this article for her. But you can certainly dress Annie, or any other doll you wish, in this cute little dress.

This dress is a simple pattern, but I have added an extra layer of fine mesh tulle over the skirt, to give it more of a dress-up effect. This doesn't really increase the difficulty of making the dress, but gives it a pretty little extra touch.

As you can see in the photo, I used the same tulle for a ruffly stand up collar and added some white ribbon as well.

You can probably find everything you need to complete this dress in your scrap basket, which is exactly what I did. The fabric required was less than half of one quarter yard, about an eighth yard of tulle and half yard of white, 1/4 inch wide satin ribbon. Tip: Any time I get anything with a ribbon on it, whether it's a gift, greeting card or fancy bar of soap, I always save the ribbon for just such a small project.

The second photo is a close up from the side to show the sparkly sheen that very fine tulle lends to the skirt.

The pattern pieces for the dress can be found Here. Instead of cutting the rectangle for the skirt 9 inches wide, I made it about 6 inches wide to make a shorter skirt.

The tulle is 2 rectangles, one the same size as your skirt piece and one about 30 inches by 2 inches for the collar.

Next week I'll write the sewing instructions, so check back soon.


Make Clothes for 18 Inch Dolls The most popular dress on the Doll Making Site, The Spring Dress for 18 Inch Dolls, is included as well as 5 other outfits, underwear, and accessories such as jewelry, a bag, a knitted hat and scarf, and the new scrub suit. There are also patterns for slender Magic Attic type dolls as well as full-bodied American Girl dolls and an antique Saucy Walker doll from the 1950's.
If you love 18 inch dolls, and want a collection of patterns for a wardrobe, all in one handy Ebook, this is for you! All these patterns are available on the Doll Making site, but I have brought them all together in one book for ease of finding and using them.
