Easy 18″ Doll Dress/ KwikSew 3906

KwikSew 3906 dress pattern for girls & dolls

KwikSew 3906 is one of my favorite 18″ dress patterns ever. I use it over & over.

You should buy this pattern

The doll dress has a pocket option, optional waist tie, and the skirt and shoulder straps are easily modified for different looks.

The pattern also includes a matching dress for little girls, and headband patterns for girl & doll. I haven’t made the girls dress yet.

Here I’ve made the skirt less full since I was working with a scrap of leftover fabric. I actually really love this fabric. I think it would’ve looked really hip with an A line skirt and flat shoulder straps, but I added the vintage lace & ended up making it look dated. It’s crazy how small details can make such a difference!

I really love how I can make this dress with a fat quarter. This orange fabric came in a bundle of 5 fat quarters for $10. I used a 50% off coupon. That means this dress costed $1!

(Have a look at my Liberty Jane Faraway Downs post if you’d like to see a striped version of this dress.)

Thanks for reading!

  1. Oh my! This is so cute. And I guess at $10, it is a pretty great deal. It is not a bad idea to spend $10 for a very adorable dress, right?

    I totally agree with Rachel… very well dressed little doll!!! So much attention to detail on such a little garment, Amy.

    Those dresses are so cute! I have twice attempted doll clothes for my girl’s Felicity doll, and I never want to do it again! They are cute but it was so stressful, all those tiny little pieces!

    Amy,
    this is such a cute pattern. I have seen it before. Can you believe non of my grandies have had American Girl dolls. They’ve either not been ‘doll’ girls or one is too young. Maybe she’ll love them. for now she loves Minnie and Mickey.
    hugs,
    Jann
