25 to 26 inch Doll Dress Pattern and Sewing Directions
Here are instructions for making dresses to fit 25 inch to
26 inch (65cm) Raggedy Ann dolls and other extra large
dolls. The model above left is my 25 inch Raggedy Ann.
You’ll need one half yard (one quarter meter) of material for the bodice and sleeves and one third yard for the skirt.
Cut a rectangle 12 inches long and 31 inches wide for skirt. This gives 2.5 inches for hem.
Bodice, sleeves and collar patterns: The grid is 1 inch (2.5cm) squares. Pattern pieces include one quarter inch seam allowance. You may use the pattern for yourself or gifts but not commercially.
To make your 1-inch square (2.5cm) grid graph paper
First, take an 8.5x11 inch piece of plain paper and draw 1 inch squares - I do this by drawing horizontal lines 1 inch apart down the page, and then verticle lines 1 inch apart across the page.
Next, looking at the .jpg image you want to enlarge, copy what is in each of my squares into your larger squares.

Finished sides facing, sew collar front to collar back on both short edges and on long outside round edge. Leave inside short rounded edge free to turn right side out. Clip curve and turn finished sides out and press. Sew on ribbon trim as in photo.
With right sides of back and front bodice facing, sew together at shoulders. Press seam open.
Working on finished side of bodice, sew collars to neckline and clip curve. Overtop of collar seam sew bias strip and turn to inside of bodice and sew in place.
To finish back seam of bodice, turn in twice on each center edge and hand or machine stitch to make a one quarter inch hem.
Roll in lower edge and hem by hand or machine. (I sew sleeve and skirt hems by hand.)
Gather along dotted line of sleeve, (I use quilting thread for strength) just loose enough to slide over doll’s hand and lower arm; about 6 inches (15cm) if for the Raggedy Ann doll.
Along armpit edge gather sleeve with basting stitch just inside the one-quarter inch line to fit armhole and with right side of sleeve facing right side of front and back bodice (which are just joined at shoulders and now lay out flat) stitch together with one-fourth inch seam. Clip curve. Repeat for other sleeve.
With right sides of sleeves and bodice facing, sew together sides of bodice and underside of sleeves at the same time. Repeat on other side.
Cut a rectangle 12 inches long and 31 inches wide for skirt. This gives 2.5 inches for hem. Sew center back seam and leave a 2 inch slit at center back seam at waist edge for ease in dressing. Roll the open edge to inside and hem. Gather skirt to fit waist and sew on. Turn up hem one half inch and press. Then turn up 2 inches for finished length.
Sew a band of satin or cross-grain ribbon on bodice at waistline as in photo.
Sew a velcro-type square or round closure at neck edge and waistline. I do not risk using buttons or any other fastener on doll clothes that kids will handle.
