Happy New Year!
Yesterday I gave you the free pattern and tutorial for just the bathrobe. Today I’m giving you patterns and tutorial videos for the whole ensemble!
This outfit will include pajama shorts, a pajama top, felt slippers, and a bathrobe.
For the bathrobe, top, and PJ shorts, I recommend using lightweight flannel. For the slippers, use thin felt. For the bias tape trim, I suggest using 1/4 inch (6mm) double-fold bias tape where necessary with this project.
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls:
- Ideal vintage Tammy dolls
- Ideal Tammy’s Mom dolls
- Ideal Misty dolls
- Ideal Samantha dolls
- vintage 12″ Sindy dolls
- vintage Barbie dolls

Sindy dolls were originally created by Pedigree Dolls & Toys, but they have been made by other manufacturers including Hasbro, Vivid Imaginations, and New Moon. Currently (at the time of this blog post) a limited number of the newest version of these dolls is being manufactured by Kid Kreations of Staffordshire, England. I haven’t tried my doll clothes on this newer version, but sewists have told me my Tammy doll patterns do fit the vintage Sindy dolls created by Pedigree Dolls & Toys. Please visit one of these toy companies’ websites to learn more about the toys they produce.
Ideal Toy Company owned the registered trademark for the entire Tammy family of dolls, but that company is no longer in business. I’m including links to the Wikipedia pages on these topics for anyone who would like to research these dolls.
Vintage Barbie dolls are products that were once offered by Mattel, which holds the registered trademark for them (™). They can sometimes be purchased from Mattel as reproductions. Please visit the Mattel Toys website to learn more about their company and its trademarked toys.
Liv dolls were products designed and distributed by the Spin Master company, which still makes dolls and toys today (although the Liv dolls are no longer in production at the time of this blog post). The Spin Master company held the trademark for the Liv Dolls (™). Please visit the Spin Master Toys and Games website to learn more about their company and its trademarked toys and games. Please be aware that the Chelly Wood animated doll is a Spin Master Liv doll that has been re-painted and had its wig colored to appear to look like the real doll clothing designer, Chelly Wood. This was done as a creative project by Chelly’s daughters, and the Spin Master Toys and Games company was not involved in the doll’s makeover in any way.
