A Stitch In My Side Pocket Dress 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

3 reviews   |  

Get your stitch on with this fun kid-approved design by Seams to Streams that is enjoyable for both sewist and recipient. Pockets that pop make this dress fun for little ones and the piping and side panels provide plenty of color coordinating fun for the seamstress.
This pattern provides a tip for hemming over bulky seams and is a great simple introduction to using piping. If piping has intimidated you in the past, cut your teeth on this easy application of the skill.

Designed for woven fabrics, the A Stitch In My Side Pocket Dress features a bodice lining and back hook and loop closure.

Try your hand at this unique dress, but take it slow or you may get a stitch in your side...

This pattern is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.

    Great for striped fabric.

    This is a great pattern, but i made so many mistakes. My own fault. I unpicked more on this dress than i usually do in a week. When i make it again i will make it 2.5 cm shorter so her hand can reach the pocket. I used trim on the pocket, something i have not done since high school, and that worked perfectly, but i should have done a better contrast.

    A Stitch in My Side Pocket

    The pattern is so-named because of the cute pocket set into the side seams. Perfect for color blocking. I think you'll really like this pattern if you like to see how pattern designers manipulate fabrics to make new designs. I haven't sewn anything like this before. Love when this happens.

    A Stitch in My Side Picket Dress

    This is such a cute boxy dress! The way the designer has you do the shoulders is completely new to me and was quite ingenious. I live all the different ways you can design the colors and patterns with this dress!
