Step it Up Series: Make a Gabby Gabby Inspired Doll Dress

Have you seen Toy Story 4 yet? There is a new doll character in the movie, Gabby Gabby, and she has red hair and wears a yellow polka dot dress. Like a few other inspired seamstresses on the net, I wanted to try to make a Gabby Gabby inspired dress for 18 inch dolls. Here are the ones I came up with. How did I do?

In the photos below, Blaire and Maryellen are both wearing the same dress. I used the Sugar n Spice Dress– the pinafore cutting lines to make the dress. I drew out a collar pieces, and attached it before I sewed the bodice pieces together at the neckline. Add a white waistband and attach a button placket and it looks pretty close to the original.

You could also use the Spring Shine dress pattern as well, making the same alterations. Originally I planned to put a white “slip” trimmed with lace underneath, but in the end, I just added the lace right to the hem. (For those of you too young to remember, girls used to wear a fluffy skirt underneath their dresses, usually made of white with lace trim, to make their dresses stick out in a pretty way.)

Willa’s dress is not quite as true to the original. I used the Spring Shine dress pattern, adding white lace and white flutter sleeves for more of a “similar but different” vibe to Gabby Gabby’s dress. Willa is just as happy!!
