Pretty formal wear using a new pattern called Gathered Dress on my PDF pattern page under dresses. I have used the bodice and midriff sections and the Pleated skirt (found under bottoms) and made it a knee length skirt instead of the intended full skirt. This pattern needs to be adjusted to fit the Silkstone or FR waistline and I opted for a back closure instead of side closure. A basic easy pattern that can be lined or unlined and modified and embellished to create many appealing styles.

2035-07-18 20.44.04 (960x1280)
2035-07-18 20.09.50 (960x1280)
The pattern features a step-in-to ankle length gown with halter style bodice gathered into a midriff placket and straight skirt with front and back dart control. My version is a fine jersey knit for a better drape, I altered the back side edges to fit the Silkstone and Victoire Roux perfectly, chose an S Hook to close the back neck strap and opted for a closed side seam instead of the thigh split. You could adjust the lengths for maxi, midi or use the bodice section with other skirt style, loads of possibilities.

This new pattern features a sleek figure hugging ankle length gown with scoop front neckline, plunging back neckline and cascading back drape from the shoulders. Easy to make with a step-in-to construction for dolls (gown shows a back zipper) and calls for a fine knit that hugs the body and drapes well fitting all the various 12 or 16 inch body types with little or no adjustments. It could be made short or long, or even with a back train, side or back slit etc…My version is cut from an off white jacquard knit, slightly heavier than the fine modal jersey and not quite as stretchy, lending more body to the garment for a better overall result.

Asymmetrical Dress

Yoke Sheath

Three easy to make dress style, orange sari, eggplant tubedress, pink biasbelteddress $8.00 for three 12 inch size only. These versions are fully lined and I altered the ties on orange sari and instead of twisting pink belted added a gold ring. I left the facing off of the eggplant and used a bias cut neck tie.


Halter Dress
This dress is easy to make, I will show it made up shortly, but I have made it up a few years back and it works great. Knits work best, skimp on your seam allowance for the stretch, but woven fabrics will worn up fine too.

Midriff dress

Sack Dress

Short sleeve shift dress

diamond back sundress
The pattern for this dress is easy to make and it fits perfect with no alteration. My version is done in a fine knit and I have closed the front seam choosing to cut it on the fold, the pattern shows a front opening that would be great for a beach cover up etc…I used silk ribbon for the ties. A wonderful trendy style for FR and this pattern can be found on my pattern page

draped front sheath
This unique sheath has a sleeveless empire bodice, a front drape panel, is easy to make and line and fits with little or no alteration. My version has a dressmakers bow added to the front bustline, a placket on one side at the back for snaps and slimmed the bottom of the skirt from the original pattern.

bias sheath
The updated style sheath is easy to make and line, with raglan style cap sleeves and pleated neckline. A matching belt is tied at the waistline.

Pleated neck dress
The updated style sheath is easy to make and line, with raglan style cap sleeves and pleated neckline. A matching belt is tied at the waistline.

wrap front shift dress

Gather empire sheath
This romantic style sheath has a gather empire bodice, easy to make up and fit the dolls without alteration, although for my version I shortened the length by about 1/2″ and added a placket to one side of the back for snap closing giving it a sleeker look. A zipper would work great as well.

dress only $5.00 plus instructions
I used a very fine fabric and fully lined this amazing dress, it is a perfect fit, I put a placket at the back on one side for the closure snaps, but a zipper would finish it nicely as well. Lining is relatively easy with experience. This pattern includes facing for the front and back bodice as well.

    You’ve definitely inspired me! I sew a lot of dolls for my nieces and nephews, but they (the dolls) are too big for your gorgeous dresses, I’m going to have to find out if any of the kids in my family have Barbie/fashion dolls that these dresses would fit because I would love to make them! 🙂

    Oh my god, these doll dresses are so gorgeous! I wish they came in human sizes because I would sew and wear the heck out of every single one. You are extremely talented and I’m so impressed! I’m going to have to ask my sister if my niece has a Barbie because I’m dying for an excuse to make these! *sigh* So gorgeous!!

    Hi again, no I added this, the basic pattern has a bodice and skirt, so you can modify these and use separately for different looks as well

    Does the Slouch Pocket dress have the cowl collar as shown in the photo? The basic outline of the dress doesn’t show the collar.

    HI, thanks for emailing about the patterns. The Yoke sheath is a intermediate pattern I would say, but it really depends on your miniature sewing techniques, if you line the garment or just finish your edges etc…I would say if you leave it unlined it works up very easily. The experience is really for knowing some of the tricks of sewing in miniature for a more realistic final result. I usually offer the patterns 4 for 10.00 us and there are a few free downloads on my blog as well. The Yoke Sheath has no instructions, the piece are straight forward and able to be laid out logically for cutting and sewing. There is more info about the patterns on my blog, they don`t have seam or hem allowances and you would add this when you cut according to the type of 12 or 16 inch doll you are sewing for. I hope this help in making your decision and talk to you soon.

    I would like to purchase “Yoke Sheath only $5.00 no instructions” but I do not have any formal sewing knowledge other than the one you get at school. Do you patters with instructions that I can follow?
