Make this easy dress for a dollhouse doll using circular pieces of fabric, bias tape, or stretch lace, narrow ribbon, and netting for a crinoline if you wish. Hortense the Hippo is modelling a Valentine's version in Bright Pink with a trim of hearts painted on white fabric (silk paj) using Setacolor fabric paints.

This little dress is an easy sewing project for someone just starting out. The dress can be made simpler by using felt or other fabrics that don't fray, and using only a single circular layer.

As you grow more experienced, you can adapt this method to making all kinds of doll's dresses, aprons, and other easy to sew dollhouse wear. For dolls for children, the dress is easy to remove and replace, needing only to be tied at the waist.
