Twirly Lace Doll Dress Pattern May 21, 2013 – Posted in: doll clothes, dress, pattern, sewing, tutorial


I had some fabric left over from the girls’ Easter dresses, so I decided to make matching dresses for their new American Girl dolls. They loved this!


For this dress I actually made two because I am a perfectionist like that. It really took hardly any fabric, though, and I came up with some things to make it better.
First of all, the bodice and straps are all one piece:

For the back, first I basted the ribbon loops into the back pieces…

…then sewed the straps in along the tops like so…
This was much more efficient. I whipped the second dress up in less than an hour.
Everything else in the dress construction follows the Twirly Lace Dress Tutorial found HERE.  Use a 1/4″ seam allowance for the doll dress. If you would like, for your own personal, home use only, here are the patterns that I used:
(These new pdf patterns were created and uploaded on 2/5/16.)

I will be featuring tutorials for the Boutique Style Peasant Dress and Flutter Sleeve Sundress, too! Stay tuned… 🙂
