My Tent Dress designed by Pink Ladybug Fashions is a comfy trend from the 1970s. With no darts, no waistline and no belt, it's fitted at the top and loose at the bottom, creating a casual tent shape. The yoke is lined and the back is finished with hook and loop tape.

There are three options to add if you choose to:
1 - Pockets with bows and loops
2 - Front bow and tab
3 - Shoulder bows and loops

This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18" dolls such as the newer American Girl® dolls. This pattern is also available designed to fit 14-14.5" dolls such as Hearts For Hearts Girls® and WellieWishers™

    Love it

    I am excited about this last pattern, it can be used in Christmas prints, as well as satiny materials. Then of course in summer, it is great with cottons.

    My tent dress for 18" doll

    I love the tent dress pattern. It was so easy and reminded me of similar dresses I wore. I made this pattern for welliwisher doll and now sewing it for the larger doll.
