Prairie Ruffles Dress 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

8 reviews   |  

Create a prairie dress for your 18" doll! This beautifully designed Keepers Dolly Duds doll clothes pattern includes two garments: dress and pinafore, designed to be worn layered together.

  • The pinafore has a scooped neckline and a slightly higher waistline. A small little ruffle wraps the scooped neckline. The front placket sports a row of mini buttons. The pinafore fastens at the back bodice with two buttons.
  • The prairie styled dress has a slightly dropped shoulder silhouette with short gathered banded sleeves with ruffled sleeve cap. The bodice features a double tuck at the center neckline, stand-up collar, and fully gathered skirting with a hemline at mid-calf length. The back fastens in full with buttons up the back and side ties form a pretty bow tie.


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

Another Great Pattern from Keepers Dolly Duds!

Every KDD pattern I try is great! This sweet little dress and pinafore says “Little House on the Prairie” to me … I love all the special details on both pieces. KDD patterns always have well written instructions with lots of good photos, and the fit is perfect. Every one of these historical dresses I make just makes me want to try another one!

It is not frumpy!

I love this pattern. It was fun to make and does not make my doll look dowdy. It even fits my chunky Kirsten.
