This week’s baby doll dress sewing project requires the use of elastic around the base of each sleeve. That’s not as tricky as sewing a coat zipper into a lined hoodie or aligning grommets between the layers of a lined silk corset, but I wouldn’t say this dress project is for beginners either.

That’s just because working with sleeves is challenging enough for beginners, so working with elasticized sleeves can be a wee bit more challenging than what a beginner is used to.
So bear that in mind if you decide you want to make this week’s lovely puff-sleeve dress for baby dolls. Are you brave enough to take on this challenge? If so, here’s the pattern you’ll need:
