For a long time I’ve wanted to make a gallery of free printable PDF sewing patterns to fit my vintage Pepper dolls. So when I discovered that my Creatable World dolls’ clothes also fit Pepper, I decided it was time to build that gallery.
Today’s Pepper doll clothes patterns and tutorial videos will be the first in a series of outfits I’ll be posting for the Pepper doll clothes gallery. I’d like to do at least three different outfits for her, if possible. (We’ll see…)
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls:
- Skipper dolls (but the pants fit her as ankle pants rather than full-length pants)
- Disney’s 10 inch Moana dolls
- Creatable World dolls
- Ideal’s vintage Pepper dolls
Here are your free, printable PDF sewing patterns and tutorial videos for making today’s doll clothes:
- Free printable PDF sewing pattern for the super easy felt shirt
- Free printable PDF sewing pattern for pants to fit 8″ to 10″ dolls
- Tutorial video showing how to make the felt shirt

- Tutorial video showing how to pull elastic through a casing
- Tutorial video showing how to sew snaps on fabric
Here’s an image that’s easy to share on social media, showing my Pepper doll at a different angle. By the way, that hat came from a Creatable World doll (from Mattel). Feel free to pin, like, or tweet about these free patterns and the images of these dolls wearing the doll clothes I’ve made using these patterns:

Ideal Toy Corp. produced the vintage Pepper doll mentioned in this blog post. However this company is no longer in business, and I’m not sure who holds the trademark for the Pepper doll. However you can learn more about this family of dolls if you click here.

Hi. First, Thanks for the informative blog! My daughter scored a vintage Patch (little sister of Sindy, British, sixties) for five dollars, Canadian. She came with the Schoolgirl Outfit with all pieces except glasses and shoes. She would like some more clothes sewed for her. Will the Skipper patters you have published fit her? This may be an imossible question, but you seem so knowledgeable I figured it was worth taking a flyer. Thanks in advance, Margot
Margot, I don’t own a Patch doll, but this is what I do know about the Sindy family of dolls…
Sindy is the British version of the vintage Tammy doll (which was sold in the US). These two vintage dolls–Tammy and Sindy–have similar bodies, although later versions of Sindy may not be a perfect match for Tammy.
Tammy had a little sister doll named Pepper (pictured on this page).
Now I googled “vintage Patch doll” and discovered that the Patch doll you’re referring to has a very similar face and body to the Pepper doll that I own; however their hair styles are quite different. Still, I’m fairly confident that my Pepper doll clothes will likely fit your Patch dolls.
In your original comment, you asked if I thought Skipper clothes would fit Patch. My answer is “Probably not.” You’d be fine with a pair of elastic waist shorts, but pants that are designed to fit Skipper will likely be too long in the inseam for Patch.
Hopefully this gives you something to work with, and in closing, I have good news for you… I have more vintage Pepper patterns to post this coming week! And I don’t doubt there will be more in the future as well. These little dolls are adorable and lots of fun to design and sew doll clothes for!
And congrats on finding a vintage Patch at such a great price! Way to go! 🙂
