#SewingBlogger Thursday: Free PDF Pattern for Dora and Friends 8″ #Doll Clothes

Please note that today’s tutorial video mentions that the 6-inch American Girl dolls fit into today’s free shorts pattern as well as the 8-inch Dora and Friends dolls. Yay! (I love it when dolls can swap clothes!)

This picture shows the 6-inch American Girl doll standing next to an "Alanna / Alana" doll from the Dora and Friends doll collection. The photograph accompanies a page which offers measurements for both the American Girl 6" doll and the 8" Dora the Explorer doll. These measurements are used for sewing purposes.

So on the following patterns, you’ll see images of the 6″ AG dolls instead of the Dora and Friends dolls. Don’t be confused by this please. It’s just that I first designed these clothes to fit the 6-inch AG Mini dolls, so the patterns still show that doll in the illustrations:

This image shows a visual preview of the free printable pdf pattern downloadable link that's on the same page. In the preview, we see four images of a tiny 6 inch American girl doll wearing variations of outfits that were made using this pattern. One outfit includes a T-shirt that appears to be screen printed with the words "All Star" and this shirt matches the girl-power printed fabric of the shorts the doll wears. There's also an image of the same tee shirt in navy blue solid fabric with a pair of elastic-waist underpants made of the same fabric. The doll models a tee shirt and shorts made of pink jersey fabric as well, and in a fourth image, she wears the tee shirt with a skirt. Each of these 6 inch doll clothes items has a sewing pattern that's visible in the preview image: a pattern for a skirt for 6" American Girl dolls; a pattern for a T-shirt to fit the 6-inch American Girl dolls; a pattern for shorts to fit the 6 inch AG dolls, and two patterns in the shapes of underpants / knickers that six inch American Girl dolls (AG dolls) can wear. All of these are free printable sewing patterns that you can use, marked with the Creative Commons Attribution mark, with an easy PDF download at ChellyWood.com

But YES these patterns also fit the Dora and Friends dolls too! And here they are:

For your convenience, I’ve also posted a link to the tutorial video showing how to make the T-shirt, which is found on the pattern.

If you’d like to make the underpants or the skirt for your Dora and Friends dolls, click on the links I’ve provided, but note that the tutorial videos for those clothing items focus more on the 6″ American Girl Mini dolls, although it’s possible to use those tutorials to guide you as you make the clothes for your 8″ Dora and Friends dolls.

Remember that you can show your appreciation for my free sewing patterns and tutorials by sharing them on PinterestTwitter, and other social media platforms. As it says at the end of the video, it actually helps me out a lot if you share them!
