Girl Next Door 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

4 reviews   |  

Create a mini wardrobe with this fabulously versatile ‘go anywhere’ dress pattern by Little Miss Muffett. Make a pretty dress for your favorite doll or by changing fabrics, create a blouse and pinafore; a blouse, vest and skirt; or a dress and vest. The dress has a fitted bodice which has Central Front and Back Panels, Side Panels, a Yoke and a Button Placket for added visual interest. Short Puff Sleeves have top-stitched cuffs as does the Skirt with a top-stitched lace hem edge. The gathered sleeves and skirt soften the top-stitched detail of the lined Bodice which closes in the back with Hook and Loop Tape. This relatively easy pattern is designed to fit 18-inch soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®.

Don't miss the coordinating little sister pattern for 14.5" dolls such as WellieWishers™.

I love this pattern. It was easy to make and I enjoyed the top stitching. It takes a bit more time but the finished dress is well worth it. The dress fits beautifully on a variety of 18 Inch dolls. I made 7 dresses in the first week.

Girl Next Door.

Was extremely easy. Except I have big hands and found the sleeves fiddle but I got there in the end and loved the end result.

Easy Quick Fabulous

I was lucky to test this pattern. Absolute must have. It was easy. Much quicker than it looks. Easy instuctions. Have cut more, because you can do so many variations by just using different fabric to get different results. Well.done and thank you Margie from Little Miss Muffet for another 5 star pattern
