Have you seen the free dolman tee pattern from Doll It Up? I sewed one up recently and thought you’d like it too.
Free Dolman Tee Pattern for 18″ Dolls
You really couldn’t ask for a faster doll pattern. This top sewed up in about 12 minutes.
The neckband is folded under and stitched. The hem and sleeves are banded.
Its perfect for scraps of fabric or old t-shirts. There are no closures since the neck opening is wide and the dolman sleeves slip easily over your dolls head. It fits lots of stuffed animals and dolls, although Baby Alive’s head is too big.
Make sure your fabric has plefty of stretch. Anna provides tips for choosing fabric and excellent recommendations if you’re new to knits.
I miss sewing for American Girl dolls! I keep thinking I’ll sew some things to sell, and never seem to get around to it. My niece asked me for some Barbie clothes so I made an ugly mermaid costume. I complained the whole time, although I would never tell my baby that. Barbie is just too tiny and my heart isn’t in it. I plan to buy Sofia an AG doll when she’s 5 or 6. Her Baby Alive has barely survived and her Barbies end up looking like the cast of the Walking Dead. I can’t see spending a lot yet but I’m counting the days until I can!
