Add a snap or another tie to middle of back opening if desired.

 

Now, the real beauty of this pattern: As written above, it fits American Girl, BUT

this pattern, with G hook and 3 ply yarn, and **6, 8, or10 fewer bodice rows, this will fit CPK Preemies,

With 4 ply yarn, and **6, 8, or 10, fewer bodice rows, it should fit a regular Cabbage Patch Doll

**If making for CPK or Preemie, stop sc after bodice row 14, 16, or 18, instead of 24, and start underskirt from there!!!!!! It all depends on how long YOU want this dress to be!

 

I crochet rather tightly, so you may need to go up or down a hook size depending on your own style.

Thanks, everyone, for the encouraging remarks! I found that the hardest part was taking all my little chicken-scratch notes on paper and making them into something that everyone [hopefully] can understand and enjoy, and then being brave enough to post it here for your critique!:hook

 

I recognize that most peoples' talents here far exceed mine, but I love this forum!:yes

Love the patterns. I have 3 very young nieces and I've been dressing a doll each for the coming christmas so having a ball doing so.

I finished this pattern for my nieces Dora doll this fortnight while she was visiting.

 

Thought you might like to see what it looks like on her.

I originally tried the dress for my "Chrissy Doll" but it was to wide.

But it fits Dora perfectly as a going out dress.

Dianne,

 

I don't have a Dora doll, [yet] so I'm thrilled to know this pattern will fit her, too! You did a terrific job!

 

Thanks for the lovely compliments, everyone!

I did this in Baby Wool - 4 ply. You can also adjust the length as I did by trying it on the doll as you go.
