14 Inch Baby Doll Dress

Posted on June 2, 2013

This baby doll dress was crocheted to fit the cloth body dolls that are about 14 inches long and have the wider bodies. The doll has a 11 to 11-1/2 inch chest. I crocheted using Caron Lt Peach Country yarn for the baby doll dress and hat. Both items used less than 3 ounces of yarn to complete.

Doll’s head is 10-3/4 inches around. The hat I crocheted is about 11 inches around and 4-1/4 inches long.

Shoulder straps measure 3-1/3 inches long, dress from shoulder to hem is 7-1/2 inches long and 12 inches around chest with back closed with Velcro closure.

    I love this dress. My grand daughter and great nieces and nephew all love homemade doll clothes. Sizes for anything smaller than or bigger than the American Girl 18 Inch is next to impossible to find. Thank you so much for sharing.

    Thank you for your pattern. I played with it a bit and got it to fit the 15 Inch Mary Maxim dolls for a doll I’ll be donating at Christmas. Thanks for providing this pattern.
