Pattern Details

Your 16 inch princess Animator doll will be ready for the School Dance is her easy to make and fun to wear dress. Use colorful prints and solids and mix and match the front and sleeves to create a unique look every time you sew. Change the fabrics to match the seasons and your doll is ready for the holidays, back to school or Valentine's Day or Easter. The School Dance Dress is an easy to sew pattern to make a long sleeved dress in three variations. Add elastic to the sleeves or leave it out for a fuller look. Choose the simplest version with a solid front (perfect for machine embroidery, heat transfer vinyl, or applique), or add a contrasting panel with simple, straight edges or a pretty, princess seam. BONUS: Instructions included for an attached bow, belt or ribbon to tie in front or back to embellish your dress and create your own style. This classic but simple dress is very easily made from a quarter yard of fabric (quilter's fat quarters work great!) in a woven cotton or other lightweight fabric. Mix and match your fabrics and add trims for unlimited design options. Embellish your dress with embroidery, applique, heat transfer vinyl, buttons, bows, crystals, ribbon, trim, ric rac, lace, chain, beads, or any other fun trim you like! With a velcro closure in back, it's easy on and off for little hands. This pattern is also a perfect pattern for girls that want to learn to sew for their dolls to use to create a full wardrobe for their dolls, or for more experienced seamstresses to make a basic doll wardrobe with lots of options.

Oh Sew Kat! Fashion Trends for Dolls and their Friends Oh Sew Kat! is the place to find trendy fashions and sewing patterns for your American Girl and similar sized 18" dolls. I learned to sew as a child, and like many girls, I learned to sew with doll clothes. The discovery of American Girl when my daughter was born, brought a whole new meaning to doll sewing, designing, and collecting. My daughter and I have shared many wonderful memories playing with and creating things for her dolls. I always enjoyed the days we spent together sewing doll clothes, and I hope some of you get a chance to do that too. Join the Oh Sew Kat Chat! Email list at to hear of new releases and other news!
