I made a basic dress pattern for the cupcake doll, but I haven’t had a chance to try it out. It’s a printable pattern – you iron a sheet of freezer paper to some batiste and print the pattern right onto the batiste. Then cut some lining in the same shape as the pattern.

Instructions:

1. Cut dress out.

2. Cut lining – an exact duplicate of the dress.

3. Sew dress front to dress backs at shoulders. Press seams open.

4. Sew lining front to lining backs at shoulders. Press seams open.

5. With right sides together, place the front against the lining. Pin together.

6. Sew both armholes on the seamline.

7. Sew neck and back opening on the seamline.

8. sew the hem on the seam line. Only the side seams should be open at this point.

8. Turn right side out by pulling the backs of the dress through the channel in the shoulder. This is the hardest part. Press.

9. Sew the side seams. Press.

Someone wanna be my guinea pig and test out the dress? Pretty please?

I need to know if the armholes are large enough to fit the hands through, if you can actually get the backs through the shoulder bits, and of course, if you have a better way to construct it, let me know. And send me pictures!

One thought on “Printable Cupcake Dress Pattern

  1. Hello! I stumbled across your blog via Pinterest, and I love it. I have made your Cupcake doll and a dress. However, despite your warnings I decided to make everything out of regular, ordinary craft felt (she won’t be played with and I just wanted to try the pattern). Her feet look bad because I tried to alter your pattern and failed, but she came together nicely despite my errors. Her arms fit thru the dress just fine, but felt does give a little so I don’t know if it would be different with another material. The dress is a little stiff when she sits, and I’m not really sure what to do with the back of it. I’m sure it would look and move much better in a light cotton, but I just had to be different. 😉 Thanks for your beautiful patterns, I will definitely be trying the doll again with an appropriate material! 🙂
