IRL Dress and Top 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

12 reviews   |  

IRL stands for “In Real Life”. 

What’s more fun than having doll clothes to match the trendy styles found in stores? With this design, you get up to the minute fashion in no time flat because it's easy to sew, and quick to finish.

Enjoy this design by Dollhouse Designs as a sweet dress, a stylish top, and as a super fun skate dress. Each version gives you plenty of options to customize into just the look you want.

Sporting a modest cutout at the neckline (at tank top level) this style can be enjoyed in solids, prints, or with contrasting elements.

Featuring a sleek look that makes a statement when worn as a dress, or combines so well with jackets, pants, & skirts. Made of comfy stretch knit, it has a few basic pieces that go together quickly for an irresistible look.

Try it out with a contrast upper bodice, neck band, and/or skirt. It won’t fail to get noticed with its attention-grabbing chic. Pattern includes additional pieces for an optional 2-piece back. Mix it up with sleeves from short, 3/4, long, or extra-long.

Use 1/3 - 1/2 yard of any light to medium weight stretchy knit fabric to create this design such as T-shirt fabric (even an old t-shirt), dance fabric, or similar.
To make it, you only need some fabric and a sewing machine. Simple zigzag stitches or using a serger will make a beautiful finish on seams and hems.

Recommended Fabrics: Sized for moderate stretch knits only. T-shirt fabric is perfect.

Supplies Needed:
-1/3 - 1/2 yard of any light to medium weight stretchy knit fabric
-Trims, etc. as desired for embellishment
-Matching Thread

Ice skating set looks great

Very nice clear instructions, pattern pieces went together easily and fit the doll well. Really enjoyed making both items.

Great pattern!

I made the skating dress (we are calling it a cut releasing dress). It came out beautiful, thanks in no small part to the detailed instructions provided. I had no trouble following them, even though my most recent sewing experience is about 30 years ago.

Easy!

Looks intimidating but is well written and goes together well. Love the different variations. Will be using this one again.
