Easy Doll Hospital Gown - a FREE Pattern

Last March, I participated in a service activity and as part of that activity, we made simple medical dolls and hospital gowns to fit those dolls.  As I was making them, I realized they are the perfect size for an American Girl doll. HERE is the link to that pattern; go to "Items to make" then to "Medical Play Dolls" and then to "Doll Gown Pattern".  This is a super easy sewing project and can be made in around 15 minutes.  

Supplies needed: 
  • scrap of fabric about 9 inches wide x 20 inches long (I used flannel)
  • coordinating thread 
  • a package of double folded bias seam tape 
  1. Cut out the pattern.
  2. Sew the shoulder seams together.
  3. Sew seam tape to the sleeves.
  4. Sew side seams together.
  5. Sew seam tape to the back around to the hem.
  6. Sew seam tape to the neck leaving around 7 inches to tie the gown closed.
That's it. You're finished - you could also make one of THESE clipboards and then add a few medical charts to that clipboard.  You can download some perfectly sized charts HERE.

Happy Sewing!  xoxo Grandma
