Garden Collection - Dress Up Bunch Doll Dress, Apron and Hat Pattern



- +

This garden collection contains patterns for an easy doll dress that can be worn alone, or with a belt, or with a simple work apron - with pockets!

There's also a "straw" garden hat, made of felt but embroidered to look like straw.

The collection includes patterns for all those pieces, all sized to fit Dress Up Bunch rag dolls. 

All three are super easy patterns - great for beginners. You'll want to make a bunch of these dresses!

Please note - this pattern is just for the outfit and accessories. None of the dolls you see in the photos are included. All the Dress Up Bunch dolls (except Mini Lizzie) can wear all of the Dress Up Bunch outfits and accessories.

This is exclusively available as a PDF pattern, delivered instantly and ready to print onto letter-size paper. No shipping costs and no waiting!

    This pattern is not available for commercial resale. That means you may not copy and sell or digitally distribute the pattern or any variation of the pattern

    For example, you may not print the pattern and sell those copies.


    You may, however, sell anything you make with Shiny Happy World patterns as long as you are the one making it.

    For example, if you're using this pattern to make dolls and clothing which you sell at a craft fair or in an online shop, that's great!

    Talk to Me

    If you're hiring out any part of the process, please get in touch and we'll work out a fair licensing agreement.

    For example, if you want to hire someone to machine embroider the faces, or do all the stuffing for you, those two scenarios would require a licensing agreement. Get in touch! I'm easy to talk to. :-)

    Dress, apron and hat pattern

    Easy patterns to follow I think I have ordered most of the doll patterns and have used all of them more than once. My great granddaughters love the dolls and the clotures.


    I haven’t made the dress yet but I made the play shorts and shirt, and the skirt.
    Easy and adorable. First things that I have sewn in 35 years! I’m planning on trying other projects. So happy that I found your site.
