Step 1: What you will need
Picture 1: You need a piece of fabric that looks great on both sides. This fabric shows the same, front and back. You can also use satin which shows shiny on one side and flat on the other or any other. Satin-backed velvet would be great too.
You also need a matching piece of ribbon and a sewing machine.
Step 2: Measure your fabric
To determine the length of the fabric, you need about 1 1/3 the length that you doll is tall. Our fashion doll is about 12 inches. Our final dimension ended up at 16 inches.
Cut your fabric with a rotary cutter or scissors.
Also, measure your ribbon. Your ribbon needs to be as long as your dress is wide.
