Easy Baby Doll Dress

DSC_0043Recently I used some scraps to make little baby doll dresses based on this pattern by Susan Kramer. They made great gifts for those little mamas in my life. Many more doll clothing patterns by Susan can be found here.

The original pattern calls for sleeves and lace, but I just used the bodice part and folded and hemmed the edges, then added the bottom ruffle. It was easy to make the sleeveless version, and I think sleeveless is also easier for a toddler to put on her/his doll. For the closure I used a tiny bit of Touch Tape, which is an awesome Velcro-like-but-stronger-better fastener. You can purchase it from cloth diaper materials suppliers.

Here’s another version of the dress, made from a recycled men’s shirt:
