At this time last year, we released our Popover Sundress sewing pattern as a free download.
Shortly after that, S asked me to make a Popover Sundress for her favorite doll, Samantha, to match a dress that she was wearing at the time. I scaled the pattern down to fit an 18 inch doll, made Samantha’s dress, and promptly forgot about the doll-sized pattern.
Last week I was going through some files and came across the pattern again. We thought there might be other little girls who would enjoy having a matching Popover Sundress for their favorite doll, so we’re making the pattern available as a free download.
Like the original sewing pattern, this is a simple and quick item to sew. It uses the same construction method as the full-sized dress, so you’ll also need to download the instructions for that version in order to sew the doll dress.
Finding this pattern reminded me that I’ve made a few other Oliver + S styles in 18 inch doll size for S over the years. If there’s enough interest, we’ll make some of those patterns available as free downloads in the future.
