Cotton Clouds 18" Doll Clothes

7   |  

Let your 18" doll play in this perfect girly dress. It sews up quite easily and can have a variety of looks depending on your fabric. Do a plain dress or one with a contrasting band. The yoke can also be done with a contrasting fabric and is lined. I finished my dresses off with larger buttons to add accent to the dress but smaller buttons can be used as well. The dress hangs below the knee and the sleeves are short and puffy. The dress closes with snaps in the front.  As a bonus, there is also a shorts bloomer pattern included in this PDF sewing pattern. 

Recommended Fabrics:  Light to medium weight woven Fabrics like cotton and quilter’s cotton.

-Fabric 1 – Dress and Bloomers – 18 x 44”

Cotton Clouds 18" Doll Clothes

Very happy with this dress pattern. Nice and roomy without being too loose. Made it for Canada Day in a red and white maple leaf pattern with white collar and white buttons. Look forward to making the two-tone version later. The bonus bloomers turned out really well and the pattern will be used many times. Thanks again, Jenifer B

Easy to sew

My nine year old was able to help me make this dress. The only thing that I had to really help with was the collar and the sleeves. This is a very sweet dress. We ended up using Velcro closure at the front and faux buttons. ginnie / http//

Cotton Clouds 18" Doll Clothes

I made both versions of the pattern and found the pattern to be easy to follow. I am not a fan of snaps and was hoping to use Velcro on the dresses but quickly found out that it wouldn't work. I have plans to make more but possibly moderating the pattern where I can utilize Velcro versus snaps. Because I am not a fan of snaps, I chose to make buttonholes with the buttons for closure.

Very Pretty Dress

I made two dresses from this pattern and love them both. They fit my older dolls perfectly. There are so many options with this dress. It's quick to make and doesn't take a lot of fabric. I love the little details - like the way the yoke is attached to the skirt. The curve makes it hang perfectly It's a nice touch and makes the dress look more difficult than it is. I will look for more patterns from this designer.
