DIY Doll Dress

Hey y’all! I just made my dolls a cute dress from an old sweater I had! It is in the style of a pillowcase dress, but is obviously made from sweater and not pillowcase material!


Here’s how I made it:

Take one sweater and fold it in half down the middle, so the sleeves line up with each other. Do this so that the sweater is open. Cut off the sleeves and anything that prevents thew sweater from lying flat.

Cut out a large square. Fold that in half and cut down the folded line. With the fabric still lined up together, make two-inch (approx.) holes for the arms by taking a crescent shape out of both sides of the fabric.

Next, take one of the pieces of fabric and lie a pretty ribbon across the top. Sew onto it. Do the same with the other piece. Then, sew hems onto each of the fabric pieces.

Line them up again with the ribbon part facing in, and sew up the sides. Place on your doll and tie the sleeves up, then add a ribbon around the waist! 🙂

Let me know how yours turns out if you make one! 😀
