Andrea Dress Pattern by Sally Robertson - $8.95

smocking plates can be modified for dolls

We shortened the length of this dress. If you want to shorten your dress also just cut the front and back skirts shorter. Then follow the simple directions for making the hem as you sew the tuck in the skirt.

If you are an experienced smocker you may have many smocking plates you want to use for this dress. However, the patterns in smocking plates are often too large for dolls. Chances are the plates with stacked cable pictures will definitely be too large to use. However, many of the design elements in the geometric smocking plates may work. You can look for patterns that are five full rows (ten half-rows) wide and see if they will be attractive in this dress. Of course, it is always fun to experiment!

Fabrics required:

  • Dress 7/8 yd. of batiste, broadcloth or calico.

English smocking

The model wearing the smocked dress is a "Dress Me Doll"© from The Martha Pullen Company.

This smocked dress pattern fits 18" dolls (those with vinyl head, arms and legs and a cloth stuffed body) such as The American Girls Collection® by the Pleasant Company, Götz Dolls® (non-designer) and many others. The smocked dress pattern is actually designed to fit The American Girls Collection®, Götz Dolls® (non-designer) and Dress Me Dolls© from The Martha Pullen Company (these dolls are the same size). The pattern will also fit the following dolls quite well: Faithful Friends Collection®, Tolly Girl®, Liberty Landing®, Girls on the Go®, Savannah of Storybook Heirlooms™, Laura Ashley®, Collector's Lane®, Creative Doll Company®, Springfield Collection®, Sophia's Heritage Collection®, Autumn Harvest™, Our Generation™ and miscellaneous composition and porcelain dolls. Since some dolls, such as Liberty Landing®, Autumn Harvest™ and Our Generation™, are a little thinner, you may want to check the size of your doll and adjust the smocked dress pattern slightly for a better fit.

Infinite Freedom and Sally Robertson are not associated with any of the above named dolls or companies in any way.

My prayer is for a world so safe and abundant...
where all who love to sew are free to sew...
where all have the resources they need to sew...
and no strife or war can touch anyone who wants to sew.
