Ruffled Nightgown 18" Doll Clothes

6   |  

The Ruffled Nightgown pattern was inspired by Don Daily’s whimsical illustrations in The Nutcracker, a childhood holiday classic by E.T.A. Hoffman. The long gown has options for a shirred yoke and long or three-quarter length sleeves. The bodice is lined. Puffy sleeves and ruffles on the yoke give the gown a Victorian look. This design works well in lightweight cottons, cotton blends, as well as lightweight flannel. The ruffles can also be made from flat eyelet lace.

Don't miss the My Angie Girl Ruffled Nightgown for 14.5" dolls such as WellieWishers, also available on Pixie Faire.

Ruffled Nightgown for 18" Doll

I LOVED the result, but this pattern took time and patience. I first made the WelliWisher size, then made several for the 18" doll. The many gathered seams turn out well using the Ruffling Foot. I use this foot in 90% of my doll creations. A rolled hem on the shoulder ruffles & lower hem ruffle looks very nice. I also made a dress without the shoulder ruffles. Overall, a fun & rewarding project!

This nightgown can be made with heavier fabrics for winter and light weight fabric for summer. So cute!
