For your free patterns and tutorial videos, please scroll down to the second set of bullets.
I realize we’ve seen these patterns and tutorials before, but I wanted to make sure I created a blog post showing how adorable the pinafore and the green dress are, when worn together as a layered pair.
If you’re wanting to sew this whole outfit for your 10 and 3/4 inch (27 cm) Strawberry Shortcake dolls, here’s what you’ll need to purchase: 3/4 inch Velcro, cotton small-print fabric, and lace.
Are you wishing this pattern was just a little different in its design? That’s what my paid course teaches you: “How to Alter Doll Clothes Patterns.” In fact, we actually use this pattern — YES, this very same pattern — in my course, to adapt the design of the dress bodice, turning it into a shirt.
So consider signing up for my paid course, if that sounds interesting to you.
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls*:
- Disney’s 10 inch Moana dolls
- Rainbow High 10 and a half inch dolls
- Strawberry Shortcake 10 and 3/4 inch dolls
- Vintage 8 inch Vogue Ginny dolls (dress is floor-length)

According to Wikipedia (as of 9 January 2022), Strawberry Shortcake “is a cartoon character used in greeting cards published by American Greetings. The line was later expanded to include dolls… The franchise is currently owned by the Canadian children’s television company WildBrain and American brand management company, Iconix Brand Group through the holding company Shortcake IP Holdings LLC.” I was unable to find a website for Shortcake IP Holdings LLC, but I believe they own the US trademark for the dolls, even though I believe my own doll was originally made and marketed by Hasbro.
