When you find out how quickly and easily this versatile dress goes together, you’ll understand why we call it “Wraptastic!”
Inspired by a vintage sewing pattern, this simple little dress for 18-inch dolls simply slips over your doll’s head, then wraps both forward and backward. Snap it in the back, tie it in the front … and your outfit is complete! As an added bonus, the dress is entirely reversible, which means you get two dresses in one! Mix and match colors and prints for even more options.
With easy to follow step-by-step photo instructions, this downloadable PDF project goes together quickly for most confident beginner-level sewists. You can even make it a little easier by substituting slightly wider double-fold bias tape for the neckline.

My 11-year-old daughter is learning to sew, and I don't know much more than she does. She made 3 of these, and I made 1! I'm sure we'll make more in the future. It was great fun and very rewarding to have TWO dresses for the work of one!
Well done! Instructions are very clear with illustrations. No wondering how to sew.
Clever, cute, great pattern
What can be said..I think this is adorable..
