Someone drank a special potion and suddenly turned small!
An 11 cm cutie can’t wait to meet you, so let’s not delay.
Dolly Sewing Crush: RosalynnPerle Project #2
For the 2nd RosalynnPerle project we went tiny, 11cm to be exact.
Flip to page 53 in Doll Coordinate Recipe 12: Sweet Fairy Tale and awaiting you on the page, is a lovely Night Dress.
Your work and time will be rewarded in 11 steps.
The Night Dress pattern fits dolls size:
- 11 cm
The directions for the Night Dress are written in Japanese.
There are no images to go with the directions, only an illustration with numbers that correspond to the steps.
Your Layout For Sewing Success
Here is your blueprint for making the Night Dress:
- Fold the sleeve cuffs & the back
- Stitch the sleeve cuffs
- Sew elastic on the wrong side of sleeve
- Gather the neckline of the dress
- Sew collar to neckline
- Sew side seams & sleeves together
- Fold hem & sew
- Attach lace to hem
- Sew hook & loop fastener to back
- Attach ribbons to cuffs
- Add beads & pearls to the chest (I skipped this step)
Hip hip hooray, the Night Dress is complete!
Oh dear, Hina-chan looks soooo sweet.
I just want to give her a big bear hug.
Dolly Insider Skill Level Rating:
This was our 1st time sewing for a 11cm doll!
This pattern wasn’t difficult but I had to get use to sewing from 1/6 scale to 1/12 scale.
I had trouble attaching the collar along the gathered neckline . . . I’m beginning to notice a common thread here. ?
Overall, the instructions were so so.
I feel like the directions could’ve explained some of the steps in more detail.
Also, the dress is a bit oversized for our 11cm girl.
Check back in next week to see the 3rd project!

Hi, how are you getting the instructions translated?
Hi Amy Creamer,

Thanks for your question!
My, isn’t she the cutest little darling! The slightly oversized nightie actually makes her even cuter!
As always, I’m beyond impressed by your artistry in sewing under the microscope! Bravo!
Your encouraging words help keep me inspired, especially during challenging projects! 🙂
Sewing for Hina-chan at the 11cm has me excited to try to some 11cm sewing books.
Hina-chan looks forward to seeing you again next week!
