Summer Day dress 8-inch doll Riley Kish

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • ch, sc, hdc, dc
  • uses spike sc stitch but instructions are given

Pattern Description:

This is a sweet sleeveless summer dress for your little doll. The spike sc stitch used takes a little extra time but is well worth the results in the rich texture it produces.

I made this for Riley and friends by Kish. You should probably be able to use this same pattern for Tiny Betsy McCall and Tiny Ann Estelle by Tonner, dollhouse Madeline, skinny Ginny, and the mini American Girl dolls.
