16 Inch Baby Doll Dress for Fall

As the November deadline looms ever closer for the doll donation, I'm trying to make sure I have a good selection of outfits for all the dolls. Since I donate two of the JC Toys - La Baby 16-inch Baby Dolls it generally means I need to make duplicates of everything I donate or have at least an equal number of outfits per doll to make the donations similar.

While I often use the same patterns for both dolls I do like to change up the colors and this fall set was a fun take on Darski's free Dora pattern a Dress for February found here.

To get the dress to fit the 16 inch baby doll I use a K hook and worsted weight yarn for the top of the dress and an I hook for the skirt. The shoes are made with another of Darski's free pattern sets that I hope to be making for the second 16 inch doll soon Peachy Keen found here.

I completed the outfit for the first doll back in February and it is time to finish the second. The shoes are the ones that seem to fit this baby doll the best so I'm constantly going back to this pattern to add it to other doll outfits as I know they will stay on the doll's feet.

I don't have a pattern for the hat it was just something I played with as I sat watching TV. I hope to get one more of these done in different colors for the other 16 inch doll prior to the deadline. It works up quick and makes for a nice addition to the wardrobe.
