A detailed sewing pattern with photos at every stage to make a lovely summer pinafore dress and a sweet summer cardigan knitting pattern for a favourite doll – basic sewing skills are needed for the dress, basic knitting skills for the cardigan.
The dress and cardigan have been designed for 18” American Girl and Our Generation Dolls. The dress is simple and sleeveless with a button at the back and 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
