A detailed sewing pattern with photos at every stage to make a lovely summer dress and a sweet summer cardigan knitting pattern for a favourite doll – intermediate sewing skills are needed for the dress, basic knitting skills for the cardigan.
The dress and cardigan have been designed for 12” Kathe Kruse and Dandelion Dolls. I make the Dandelion Doll bodies from a pattern by NilaDolss on Etsy. It will also fit 10" dolls as long as they're not too slim.The dress is sleeveless with poppers at the back and a pleated skirt which looks great made in a good quality cotton with a tiny print for a real vintage feel. I often use Tilda quilting cotton fabric as it handles well, has lovely colourways, doll sized prints and is great quality - Liberty Tana Lawn looks lovely too.
The cardigan is knitted in one piece, top down and looks great made in 100% cotton knitting wool in pastel shades.Whilst any good quality knitting wool if fine, for a summer look I suggest using 100% cotton knitting wool. I use DMC Natura Just Cotton as it knits up well, comes in a range of lovely colours which nicely complement the Tilda fabric I use and it washes well. A labour of love always deserves the best !
I have made these for my granddaughters, with a loving wish in every stitch
