Baby Doll Dress for February

This dress came from a free pattern found here for a 15 inch Dora the Explorer doll. I've gotten used to having to adapt doll patterns to fit the JC Toys 16-inch Pink Baby Doll as doll patterns aren't written specifically to fit this doll.

It took a bit of experimenting but I realized that for the bodice of the dress I needed a K hook to make the dress fit. Anything smaller and it was just too tight on top. However, a K hook for the skirt made the dress much too large so I went back to the suggested hook size I for the skirt.

There is a shoe pattern with this pattern but I went back to my tried and true Peachy Keen pattern for the shoes. I know they fit and they don't fall off so these are the shoes the baby doll will be wearing. You can find that pattern here. I do have the complete Peachy Keen set on my list of patterns to make for the donation this year. However, right now the shoes make an appearance constantly.

I loved the holiday colors for this dress and have plans to make a second dress in different colors to keep the donation bags even. While I've been able to convince myself repeating patterns is necessary to have enough baby doll clothes for this donation, I do draw the line at having to repeat the colors all the time.

I can crochet and I'm working on a pony tail hat right now. I've never tried doll dresses. I think that might be my next project to learn. Thanks for sharing! Have a great day!

So cute! I'll definitely be making a few of these for my daughter's dolls.
