PDF Pattern #SS2016-09 "Tanglin Infant School Dress" to make a doll version of the Tanglin Trust School Singapore (Infant School) uniform to fit standard 18-inch dolls such American Girl®, Florrie, Tonner My Imagination, Our Generation.

This dress will also fit Gotz dolls though it will be looser on them.

This is NOT a typical Swish & Swirl pattern. It was created for mass production of the doll-sized school uniforms of my children's school while we lived in Singapore. These uniforms were sold by my friend and me under the Daisy Dolls brand at the school fairs in 2012-2013 (see one of the photos). Now that I have stopped making those uniforms to order, due to the demand, I have decided to release it as a pattern so some other parents could make these uniforms for their daughters' dolls. In this pattern you will not find any complicated seams. The only hand stitching is to attach buttons, everything else can be done on a sewing machine.

However, I hope this pattern would also appeal to other doll collectors as this uniform can be sewn in other fabrics and would look great (as the examples from my brilliant testers show!).

Note to Tanglin Trust School parents: This pattern is intended for personal use only. Mass production and/or selling this doll uniform at the TTS school is not allowed. If you wish to do it, please contact me.

This pattern was created in collaboration with Ariadne of Ariadne’s Thread (www.ariadne-thread.com).

School summer dress

This little dress was fun to make and I used it to make the first button holes I have done in years. I never had to wear school uniforms but my dolls do so this was just what I was looking for. The pattern was nicely written and fits my doll great.
