I found this rectangle of “beary” cute fabric on my sewing table, cut off of another project.  It was the perfect size to hem up, gather, and add a ribbon waistband to in order to make a simple, Valentine apron.  Riley is wearing it over the white Sugar n Spice dress I made last year. (Take some advice from me.  🙂  Spend a weekend and make a few Sugar N Spice dresses in three or four solid colors.  You’ll find you have the perfect dress to add just a little (and quick!) holiday accent to when the time comes just like I did here.  You can see the same white dress as an angel for Halloween HERE and under the black checks/bunny dress HERE.)

Sewing Inspiration: Sugar n Spice Dress for 18 inch Dolls

Here’s a little inspiration for your sewing this weekend. I bought some new fabrics from my favorite online shop, The Fat Quarter Shop, and wanted to stitch up something new.  I have a new selection of fabrics from the amazing Bonnie Christine.  This is her HELLO OLLIE collection.

Easy sewing pattern for 18 inch doll dress – Try the Sugar n Spice PDF Pattern

Make your 18 inch doll a gorgeous dress like this Sugar n Spice Dress made with Bonnie Christine OLLIE fabric.  Find easy PDF printable sewing patterns for 18 inch dolls and other sizes in the Oh Sew Kat Etsy Shop.

I chose the Sugar n Spice Dress pattern .  I made the pleated hemmed sleeve and a six inch skirt, adding lace to the bottom.  I added the bonus apron as well.  This dress is my most popular pattern because it is easy to stitch up in a single evening.  The sleeves have pretty puffs and pleats and you can make the dress look different with just a few changes.  I didn’t change anything on this one except add some lace to the bottom.  I used less than three fat quarters to make this dress. (I had to stitch two pieces together to make the green bird piece long enough for the skirt).

If you look closely, you will find the fabric is what really makes your doll’s dress look Hawaiian.  Your Nanea or her friends will be thrilled with this modern take on a simple Hawaiian Muumuu dress.  I chose a bright, orange floral print.  Be sure the flowers are not too large for your doll, but with dresses like this, honestly, almost anything can work.

Use this easy tutorial to make a Hawaiian inspired dress for your doll with the Sunshine Dress sewing pattern.



Sunshine Dress sewing pattern for 18 inch dolls

First you will need the pattern.  Click the image above to go to  my Etsy Shop. (This pattern is also available for Animators and WellieWishers and the tutorial will work the same for those dolls as well- Hello Lilo and Moana? 🙂 

Step 1.  Choose your sunshine dress pattern view (Princess seam, solid front, or straight seamed front) and cut out all of the front, back and lining pieces as directed by the pattern.  No sleeves are needed.

Step 2.  Cut a strip of fabric to add to the hem of the dress as the ruffle.  I used 2 1/4 x 33 for a shorter, more modern look.  Traditional muumuus probably have a longer ruffle (3 x 33 inches).  Finish the bottom hem of the ruffle, by pressing up 1/4 inch and stitching in place.

Step 3.  Complete the Sunshine Dress according to the pattern instructions making it sleeveless, as seen in this tutorial here.  Add the ruffle to the bottom edge and top stitch. Do not finish the back edges yet.

Step 4.  Choose your trim to add to the neckline and hem.  I used a cute, gathered ribbon trim I had on hand.  Add your trim around the neckline and hemline, leaving a bit hanging over the back edge.  You can stitch in in place by machine or by hand.  Finish the back edge as directed by the pattern , catching trim ends.  If you don’t have trim you like, you can also make your own with fabric or ribbon. Create a fabric tube, or choose a wide ribbon and gather it down the center to create a ruffle.
