Item details

This digital doll clothes pattern will let you sew a dress and skirt for a Mori Girl outfit or make a stylish every day dress for your 18 inch doll.

If you see a girl that looks as though she is a fairy tale forest dweller who has just stepped out of an enchanted wood, chances are good you’ve spotted a Mori Girl. Born in Japan as a subculture, Mori Girl style embodies living in the moment and living in harmony with nature.

Mori (meaning forest) Girl style is all about natural fibres and colours from nature – creams, browns, greens and autumnal oranges, reds and yellows. The style also favours a lot of layering. This dress can be used as a ‘foundation layer’ for Mori Girl style, but also works as a cute, everyday dress.

You can choose to line your dress or make it with facings. The lined version can be made as a reversible dress. Two looks in one!This dress also works well in 1960's prints. Make it Mod!


Supplies:

Skirt:

- 15 ½ inches by 5 ¼ inches of light weight cotton or blends for the skirt body
- 2 ¼ inches of 45-60 inches of soft mesh or lace fabric for the skirt ruffle. Note that tulle will not work. You will be cutting a strip the entire width of your fabric, which is why a range of 45-60 inches is specified. Longer strips will provide more fullness.
- 15 ½ inches of lace or other trim to go over top of the ruffle. Trim should be minimum 1 ½ inches wide and maximum 2 ½ inches wide.
- 11 inches of 3/8 inch wide elastic

- Optional - 6 inches by 5 inches of light weight fusible interfacing
- 7 inches of hook and loop tape that is 3/8 inch wide OR 5 sets of sew in snaps
- Optional - 88 inches of ½ inch, single fold bias tape or two self-cut bias strips 44 inches by ½ inch*
- Optional – 20 ¾ inches of ½ to ¾ inch wide lace to add to the hem
- Optional – embellishments such as fabric flowers, wooden charms etc.


Faced Option:

- 1/3 yard of light weight cotton* as a main fabric
- 14 x 4 inches of light weight cotton for facing
- 12 inches by 5 inches of light weight complementary cotton for the Collar

I have made this dress several times, and love it, easy to follow pattern. I have added sleeves and love mixing the color variations.

I love this very different style dress and slip set, though I preferred to make it in brighter colours.
