Two Tulips Dress 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

Featured In Pixie Packs
2 reviews   |  

Two Tulips Dress gets its name from the lovely tulip style sleeves. Other eye-catching details include a contrast hem band and peter pan style collar. Princess seams provide a wonderful fit and silhouette. Fully lined, using the “burrito” method of construction, this dress is as nicely finished on the inside as it is on the outside.


This design is best made with lightweight woven fabrics such as Lawn or Batiste because of the number of layers of fabric at the shoulder. Quilting cotton can be used with some minor changes in construction, which are discussed in the pattern.


Back closure instructions are given for using hook and loop tape. But with the 1/2” seam allowance at the center back, snaps, buttons, or a zipper could be used if desired.

This PDF sewing pattern by dKinley designs is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.
