Individual Sewing Pattern "Stella Dress" by Sally Robertson - $8.95

Stella Dress has smocked apples in the front.

View 1 of the Stella Dress. This dress features smocked apples just under the bodice. The dress is smocked in the front only and the back bodice comes down to the last row of smocking.

This elegant dress is actually simple to sew. The technique for putting the elastic in the sleeves is the easiest one I know. The large, oversized sleeves have Rick Rack partly showing on the edge of the hem. The dress is set off with a square neckline and Rick Rack around the bottom edge of the hem. The back is fastened with Velcro.

Smocking looks like it would be so hard and yet it is so easy to do! Check out our instructional book on smocking.

Fabrics required:

  • Dress 7/8 yd. of batiste or 5/8 yd. of broadcloth.

See the free tutorial on smocking if you would like to know how to smock: Basic Smocking Stitches.

The model wearing the Stella 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 pattern was actually sized on 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.
