Express your doll’s playful, offbeat, quirky or creative side with this fitted, lined dress inspired by actress Zooey Deschanel! Now available in sizes for both 14.5-inch dolls such as WellieWishers™ and 18-inch dolls such as American Girl™!

Modeled after the Ahoy dress from the “To Tommy from Zooey” line by Tommy Hilfiger, this design allows you to express your doll’s own individual style through your choice of accent fabric for the mock pockets and cute faux skirt peeking from underneath. A back zipper closure adds to its authenticity. The 18-inch version (only) also includes instructions for optional piping at the neckline and armholes.

Whether you choose a red, white and blue sailor-type combo like Zooey, a denim cowgirl style like Matilda Jo (add a cowgirl hat!), or your own original combination of fabrics and patterns, your doll is sure to feel special in her new fun and flirty dress!

  7. This pattern was so easy to put together. I love how it turned out and will be making more of these for my daughter.

  8. All set for a day on the shore!

  9. These went together so easily and the pattern pieces are small enough that you can use your stash- I used fat quarters for the trim and lining that I have had forever! Next time I make them I will all just a bit of length, maybe my hem was too big. I will be making these for gifts! Thanks!

  10. Another Inspired by Zooey dress. The striped one is on a different brand 18" doll and fits great!

  11. Love this pattern, I have made four already!

  12. Striped cotton dress; purple accent fabric, white cotton lining. I put in the zipper but then changed it to velcro so that the dress would fit my older, rounder doll as well. Looks great, good pattern!

    • Love the stripes Irene!! She looks ready for summer! :)
