how I would do it: experiment with smaller yarn/thread and the corresponding size hook. Find a pattern that gives you a gauge (stitches and rows per inch), and the dimensions of the finished garment. then figure out how big the doll dress needs to be, and so what your gauge needs to be. then you can play with yarns until you achieve that gauge. then you can use that yarn and hook to make the pattern and it will turn out the right size.

It's official--I cannot type the word "stitch", it always comes out "sttich".
