The 14.5 inch Waldorf style dolls I made recently are a quirky size. They dolls come in all sizes from about 9 inches to 18 inches. My doll is just a bit shorter and leaner than the typical 15 Waldorf doll.
So, having drafted a pattern of my own for the doll, I had to draft a pattern for her clothes. I'm better at drawing patterns for dolls than drafting dress patterns! I cut out a trial pattern and made a test dress. It was a bit wide in the shoulders so I cut back the yoke a bit. The dress fit was much better after the alteration!
The front detail is a 1/4 inch wide ribbon, stitched onto the yoke after I attached the front skirt panel. Ric Rac would or cotton lace would be cute too.
The back is open. It will have hook and loop strips closures. When I took these photos, I hadn't sewn them on yet.
I have a idea about how to make the same dress with a fancier sleeve. Hmmm.
