A Stitch In My Side Pocket Dress 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

1   |  

Get your stitch on with this fun kid-approved design that is enjoyable for both sewist and recipient. Pockets that pop make this dress fun for little ones and the piping and side panels provide plenty of color coordinating fun for the seamstress.
This pattern provides a tip for hemming over bulky seams and is a great simple introduction to using piping. If piping has intimidated you in the past, cut your teeth on this easy application of the skill.

Designed for woven fabrics, the A Stitch In My Side Pocket Dress features a bodice lining and hook and loop closure for the entire length of the back, making doll dressing and undressing a breeze for little hands.

Try your hand at this unique dress, but take it slow or you may get a stitch in your side...

This pattern is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.

    A Stitch in My Side Picket Dress

    This is such a cute boxy dress! The way the designer has you do the shoulders is completely new to me and was quite ingenious. I live all the different ways you can design the colors and patterns with this dress!
