Melrose Dress for 6" Mini Dolls

2 reviews   |  

“Melrose”, by Karen Lorraine Design, is a pretty, sleeveless dress designed to fit 6½" (16.5cm) dolls such as the American Girl® Mini dolls (cloth and vinyl) and the Our Generation™ Lori dolls. This sleeveless dress is made from woven (non-stretch) fabrics and contains easy darts in the front and back of the bodice. These design darts, along with the simple (dartless) facing give the bodice a beautiful shape. A gathered skirt and simple closures complete the outfit.

A Dart Supplement is offered at the back of the pattern for seamstresses who are new to dart sewing. In addition, while the dress is intended to be turned right way out through the shoulders, instructions are given for those who have arthritic fingers or prefer not to turn through the shoulders. There are also some quick tips on sewing for small dolls.

Clear instructions and photos are given for each step (along with shortcut instructions for those who prefer no photos).

Suggested Fabrics: Lightweight woven cotton like lawn, voile, cotton, and lightweight quilting cotton. 


Supplies Needed:

• 10" (wide) x 11" (deep), cotton non-stretch fabric like voile, lawn, cotton, or lightweight quilting cotton.
• Embellishments like lace, buttons, applique, jewels.
• Matching or contrasting thread.
• Hook and loop tape or similar for closures.
• Seam sealant. (Optional. I have not used it in this pattern, except for sealing the ends of the lace fringe.)

Skill Level:  Intermediate
