How to make a dress for the doll’s little Izzy!

 

For everyone who requested it, here are the instructions for making a simple little dress for my Cut & Stitch printed fabric Izzies ❤
 
Little Cut & Stitch Doll Dress
 
This is a quick little dress that you can make for dolls made from my cut and stitch fabric Izzy dolls.
When I make this dress I use the selvedge edge of the fabric as the “hem” of the skirt and sleeves – make sure there is NO PRINTING on the selvedge you are using. If you don’t want to do this you will have to add extra length to accommodate a hem.
All seam allowances are ¼ inch. All seams are hand stitched.
Cut 1 – 3.5 in. x 9 in. rectangle of fabric with a selvedge along one 9 in. edge.
Cut 1 – 2.25 in. x 6.5 in. rectangle of fabric.
Cut 2 – 1.25 in. x 2.5 in. rectangles of fabric with selvedge edges along the 2.5 inch sides.
Fold the 3.5” x 9” rectangle in half with right sides together and sew the 3.5” edges together. Turn to the right side. Sew a running stitch around the top edge of the skirt, place on doll and draw up the thread to fit the doll’s waist.
Fold the 2.25” x 6.5” rectangle in half with right sides together and sew the 2.25” edges together. Turn to the right side. The seam you’ve sewn is a side seam. Fold the fabric “tube” so that the side seam is along one edge and the fold is along the opposite edge. Cut 2 “U” shaped armholes – one centered on the side seam and the other on the side fold.
Fold one 1.25” x 2.5” inch rectangle in half with right sides together and sew the 1.25” edges together. Turn to the right side. Repeat with the 2nd rectangle.
Center the sleeve seams in the bottom of the “U” shaped armholes. Stitch in place. Turn the neck edge of the bodice under ¼ inch and sew a running gathering stitch around the neckline, put bodice on doll. Draw up the thread to fit the doll’s shoulders. Sew a gathering stitch around the bottom waist edge of the bodice and draw up the thread to fit the doll’s waist. Tuck the waistline seam allowances to the inside and sew the bodice and skirt of the dress together.
* By adjusting the measurement, this same basic dress can be used to dress a Frozen Charlotte or HItty ❤
