One is a colorful school dress with modern-art decorations on the skirt. The other is a sky-blue dress with a floral skirt. All are simple to make.

Here’s the pattern I promised yesterday. On the pattern itself, you can see that this one pattern can be used to make three different dresses. But the one I’m showing you how to make this week is the middle image.

I like to call that a “Folk Dress” because of the fabric I used, which was very folksy.

In yesterday’s post, I mentioned that this dress pattern is designed to fit 4.5-inch (11 cm.) dolls like Mattel’s Chelsea® and similar-sized dolls. Tomorrow I’ll post the tutorial for it, which can already be found on my YouTube channel (just in case you want to get started on this project right away).

If you’re visiting my website after all these posts have made their debuts, try visiting my new Gallery Page. From there, you can click on whichever sewing project you’d like to make. It will offer a link to a page with everything you need to make that particular sewing project.

Remember that you need to enlarge my patterns to fit an American-sized sheet of printer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm), without margins, before printing. Feel free to pinlike, or tweet about my free patterns and tutorials.
