Sunshine Dress – An Easy Sewing Pattern to Make an 18 inch Doll Dress

When it’s cold outside, I like to stay in and stitch up a few SUNSHINE DRESSES. This pattern is quick and easy, as well as fun to embellish!

There are three different styles included in one pattern.  You can make the front of the dress one solid piece (simple style), or create a straight line center panel in contrasting fabric.  The third option is pretty princess seams.  Add bows or belts or other fun embellishments like ric rac, felt flowers, beads, crystals, and buttons.  See lots of variations of this simple dress on the Sunshine Dress page, along with a few tutorials to try something new.
