The Sunshine Dress is an easy to sew dress for your Disney® Animator doll. Choose the easiest one piece front, or a contrast panel or princess seams for a more fitted look. With a hook and loop tape closure in back, it's easy on and off for little hands. This PDF sewing pattern is also a perfect starter pattern for girls that want to learn to sew for their dolls, or for more experienced seamstresses to make a basic doll wardrobe with lots of options.
This classic but simple dress is very easily made from a quarter yard of fabric (quilter's fat quarters work great!) in a woven cotton or other lightweight fabric. Mix and match your fabrics and trims for unlimited design options.
This pattern was specifically designed and tested on an Animator doll made by Disney®. The doll it was designed for measures approximately 16 inches tall. Please measure and test the fit on your own doll as there are many different princess dolls on the market and it may not fit the same on all of them.
Recommended Fabrics: quilter's cotton, lightweight cotton, eyelet, seersucker etc.
-1/4 yard of cotton, or other lightweight fabric
-4-5 inches of hook and loop tape

I've never sewn with a pattern do this was a great start. I was able to sew all dresses except dress view C as the pattern doesn't match up with pictured example. Otherwise it was great.
This was the first time I sewed for the animator dolls and I loved the pattern and the ways I could mix up multiple fabrics. The patter was easy to follow and fun to make. Thank you
I found the pattern to be easy to assemble without using any of the instructions, but I could see where a beginner might get confused.
The sleeves were not perceptible
I had so much fun sewing this pattern. I sewed everyone of the versions for my Animator dolls. My dolls look great now! I highly recommend this dress pattern. It's so versatile!
