As previously mentioned I am a great admirer of the Sew like my Mom blog and when googling images for doll dress patterns (after lots of requests from Emily) one came up from her blog I knew that the search was over and that I would make her Katie dress.
The pattern and instructions were so easy to follow and it came together really quickly. I have had this flower fabric sitting in my stash for AGES. It was one of those purchases that I had no idea what to do with but knew it would come in useful someday. I'm so pleased with how it has turned out and even if I say so myself it looks so cute. This was such a satisfying make with its simplicity although I probably should have shortened the dress by an inch to fit the doll better.
If I make this again the only thing I might do differently is to overlock the bottom of the bodice and the seam of the skirt just to make it a little bit more durable for a three year old (well Emily at least!)
|The length doesn't look quite so long when dolly is sitting up!|

The Zip back definitely helps Emily to put it on the doll although I may have been a bit hasty in making this as now she is suggesting lots of other things that I could make for dolly!
