Vintage Dress | Doll Sewing Pattern | Isabella
My Isabella Dolls Dress Sewing Pattern brings a vintage flair to your doll’s clothes collection. With a square neckline, pintucks, and cute little cap sleeves, it’s a joy to sew. The large skirt features a circular yoke, which looks even more adorable if you add a petticoat to it. Also, why not add lace or pearls to the bodice to make the dress uniquely yours!
The dress matches the Isabella Dress Girl’s Dress Sewing Pattern and includes some specific dolls-only hacks, supported by step-by-step and easy-to-follow video tutorials exclusively filmed for the doll’s collection. My loyal Frocks & Frolics community requested these doll’s patterns, so there they are! The doll’s collection of sewing patterns are quick to sew up but still offers many professional sewing methods to get your teeth into.
You can sew up a quick unlined doll version to delight your kiddos or step it up, by sewing the lined version, which is nearer the girl’s dress in method and instruction. When you are still a little apprehensive about sewing a dress for yourself or your girl, then this is a fun training ground. All the videos for the doll collection are available for free on YouTube and at the Sewing Academy, so you can have a look before you purchase the pattern.
This PDF pattern is designed to fit 18″ dolls such as American Girl® or Görtz (46-50cm). If you are in any doubt that your doll will fit this dress, these measurements will help.
Chest: 28 cm / 11 inches
Waist: 27 cm / 10.6 inches
Front length (shoulder to waist): 10 cm / 4 inches
Light to medium-weight fabrics with a tight weave such as batiste or lawn. I added some of the fabrics I used for the vintage collection and the doll’s collection to my Amazon Influencer Shop. You can also check out the fabrics by Modes4U, a lovely shop we support. They are reasonably priced and shipping is about 10 days. Well worth waiting for, especially if you order one of their free shipping bundles.
