This pattern may look familiar, as I posted it on May 24, 2016, as part of a series of designs I made for curvy fashion dolls like the new Curvy Barbie™ from Mattel.
The shorts pattern also fits Ideal’s Tammy Dolls (vintage), Lammily’s™ Traveler Dolls, and of course, Curvy Barbie™, but the crop-top only fits Tammy Dolls and Curvy Barbie.
If you want to try making the crop-top for your Lammily doll, though, I recommend using an extension on the bodice, as her chest circumference is a little bigger than either Tammy or Curvy. Here’s a link to my video which shows how to make that alteration. I only advise alterations to this pattern if you are already a very experienced sewist.
If you haven’t seen it yet, you might want to check out my new Gallery Page, where you can pick an outfit for a doll, click on that picture, and the link in the caption will take you to all the free, printable patterns and free tutorials you’ll need to make that outfit.
If you’re wondering why I make patterns and videos without charging a fee, please visit the “Chelly’s Books” page, and that should explain my general motivations.
And in case you haven’t heard, I have also designed commercial patterns for Lammily LLC. They have some new dolls in their line, including a new male doll, so you might want to visit the Lammily website to see what they’ve got going on.

I’ve also got a series of tutorials for the beginning sewists on my YouTube channel. It includes video tutorials showing you how to do a basic straight stitch when sewing by hand, how to use the whipstitch to hem a garment, how to sew on snaps, and even how to design your own doll clothes patterns, just like I do!
