Our friend's little girl has one of those 18" dolls that are so popular, not sure which one it is but it's similar to American Girl and Maple Lea, I think Our Adventure or something like that?
Anyhow, it was her bday today so I made her a dress with a matching skirt for herself and the same skirt for my daughter who wore it to the party. I borrowed some of the doll clothes on the sly to pattern draft from and thankfully it fit very well.
It's got little buttons on the sleeve cuffs, matching trim at neckline and hem, and a Velcro closing in back.
And the skirts for the girls (only one pictured here, full circle skirts are hard to lay out for photos!).
The black waistband is a cut up tshirt with elastic insert and the rectangle of spotted fabric as a detail.
The skirts took maybe an hour, free hand cutting with just a few measurements. That dress was more like 6! Whew.
I don't know how to make patterns into PDF but I can try to post them with sewing instructions if there's any interest. I drafted a dress, skirt, and shirt, all can be altered slightly for style.
