This week I’m going to show you how to make a pair of bloomers (pantaloons). The free pattern, which I’ll post tomorrow, was designed to fit the little 8″ dolls. But as it turns out, once I’d sewn the bloomers, I tried them on a lot of different dolls and found they are practically a “one size fits all” item.
Check out all the different sized dolls wearing the same pair of bloomers worn by Tinkerbell® in the picture at the top of the page:
Can you believe that? This one pattern fits:
- Breyer® Rider dolls
- World of Love dolls from Hasbro®
- Monster High® dolls
- Bratz® dolls / TreeChange dolls
- Barbie® dolls
- Skipper® dolls
- Ever After High® dolls
- Project MC2® dolls and SpinMaster® Liv dolls
- fashion-doll-sized Disney Princess® dolls
- Lammily® dolls
- Momoko® dolls
That’s a LOT of dolls! As far as fashion dolls go, this pattern is as close to a “one-size-fits-all” doll clothes pattern as you can find anywhere!
So be sure to pop in tomorrow for the pattern, Thursday for the tutorial, and in case you didn’t see it, I’ve got a new contest running right now. Go back to yesterday’s post to find out about my current sweepstakes giveaway, which ends at the start of February.
