Ottobre Dresses for Dolls

I don't know why I didn't do this before, but now that I have, it seems such an obvious thing to sew. I never learnt to sew formally, but have very strong memories if sewing clothes for my doll (yes - only one!). Now that I have plenty scraps, and my daughter has plenty dolls - dresses for dolls is such a great idea.

These dolls dresses are presents for nieces - to match dresses I made, modelled by 'Baby Borns' that are over 12 years old passed on by my daughters 15 year old godmother.

My daughter loved the dresses on her dolls, so I have promised I will make more including some that match her dresses.

The dolls dresses are from Ottobre 1/03 and are reversible

There is a also a headband pattern in the Ottobre magazine, so I adapted it and made 2 child sized and 2 for the dolls. Maybe next time I will make bloomers to match.

Pin It Now!  


  1. I love these. They are really cute.

  2. Thanks Kathy, it was good to make something easy and tiny for a change.
