“Meadow” is a gentle, sleeveless dress designed to fit 6.5" (16.5cm) dolls such as the American Girl® Mini Doll. The sleeveless dress is made from woven (non-stretch) fabrics and contains options for simple hemming or hemming-with-a-facing. The dress contains a simple bodice with a drop-waist skirt. Pockets can be added, while the back of the dress closes with hook and loop tape or snap fasteners. Clear instructions and photos are given for each step (along with shortcut instructions for those who prefer no photos). This “Meadow” pattern is primarily designed for the 6.5-inch (16.5cm) American Girl® Mini Doll. It may also fit similar-sized dolls. The earlier Mini dolls had a stuffed body, while newer dolls have a hard, vinyl body. There are also slight differences between the Mini Dolls. If you would like to compare your doll with mine, here are the measurements I have used for this pattern: • Chest 3¾" (9.5cm) • Waist 3½" (9cm) • Hips (at widest part) 37/8" (9.8cm) • Biceps 1¾" (4.5cm)
Suggested Fabrics: Woven cotton fabrics like cotton, lawn, voile, light-weight quilting cottons.

First time I have sewn in this tiny scale. Loved it. Great tips for sewing facings in this teeny scale. I added buttons, topstitching and a belt for interest. BTW, my model was the cloth bodied AG mini - great fit. It also fit on my 8" Madeline series doll. Great basic sloper pattern!
