Wow, the 18 inch and American Girl version of my new Strappy Dress pattern has been proving super popular, so I’m thrilled to have it now available in the 18 ½ inch Cabbage Patch Kids size.
This pattern is super easy to sew and will certainly keep your dolls nice and cool in the hot summer months. It can be worn with or without a belt and you can change the look of the dress by simply moving the elastic from just under the breast, which gives it the ‘Baby Doll’ look, to around the waist for a more traditional look.
I have also included options for making it with or without the trim along the bottom, using contrasting fabric for the strap and provided a bonus cutting line so you can make a top too!
The flexible design of this pattern means that it will fit a large variety of dolls without altering the pattern or resizing it. As you can see from the image on the left, the top version of this pattern works perfectly as a dress on my 16 inch (35cm) Cabbage Patch doll.
So which will you make first, the Strappy Dress or the Strappy Top? They are so quick to make, I’m sure you’ll have both made in no time at all.
