Here are instructions for making sleeveless jumpers to fit 18inch (45cm) American Girl, other American historical dolls, Gotz Precious Day Girl Dolls, and dolls with similar body types. The model above is my American Girl doll, Gwen.

Important Note
: my Corolle doll (not shown) has fabric and vinyl arms  so this dress is not the best for her. Check to see if your doll's fabric body portions will be covered by the dress. Gotz and American Girl dolls have vinyl arms so the dress covers all their fabric torso skin.
 
Pattern piece for jumper: The grid is 1 inch (2.5cm) squares. Pattern pieces include one quarter inch seam allowance. Try printing out the pattern pieces to see if they stay 1 inch square:

You may use the pattern for yourself or gifts but not commercially.

Fabric: one third yard or meter.






Jumper Sewing Instructions



With right sides of back and front jumper facing, sew together at shoulders. Press seam open.

On center back side, make a 4 inch long slit down from neck edge for opening.

Sew side seams back to front. Use bias tape to finish neck edge, arm openings and back center seam opening.

Before sewing side seams add your decoration to front of jumper.

Turn hem up twice one quarter inch and blind stitch.

Sew a sticky tape closure at center back seam - no buttons for doll clothes played with by children, please.
