Miniature Clothes for a Little Doll - Free Patterns

Right before I left town to help with the birth of a new grandchild, I provided you with a free pattern to make these miniature dolls HERE. Today, I'm going to show you how to make two super easy outfits for these dolls. Yes... I said super easy. I promise. 

Here's how to make the mini tutu dress (as shown above in the left photo):

  • Sew together the decorative elastic to form a circle.
  • Fold the netting in half, length wise.
  • Tuck each piece of the netting into one of the bottom holes.
  • Thread the netting through the hole.
  • Pull tight.

Told ya it was easy, right? Try this tutu dress on your miniature doll and tie the shoulder straps into a small bow.

Now, let's make the mini sundress for this doll.  First you'll need to download THIS free pattern.

Supplies needed:
  • fabric at least 12" x 4"
  • bias tape
  • about 4" of 1/4" elastic
  • lace - optional
  • thread
  • 20" of ribbon, no larger than 1/4" wide, cut into 5" pieces
1.  Cut out the pattern. 

Optional: If you want to add some lace to your sundress, sew lace at 3/4" below the raw edge to one side, between the armholes. 

2.  Sew the seam together to make your dress into a circle of fabric. 

8.  Sew the ribbon onto the edges of the armholes.

That's all there is to it.  Your sundress is ready to try onto your doll.  I hope you have a little one who will enjoy this doll and her new clothes.  xoxo Grandma
