Today I’m posting the free printable sewing patterns for the felt sleeveless shirt and cotton bloomers shown in the image above. For the patterns and tutorial videos for making the boots, please go to yesterday’s blog post.
Scroll down to the second set of bullets for the free PDF sewing patterns.
The felt shirt pattern is one of the earliest patterns I designed for 14 inch to 15 inch dolls on this website. It’s super easy to make, and as far as fabric goes, felt is so simple to work with. Even a child could make this felt shirt!
The bloomers, which were featured in last week’s tutorial, are only slightly harder to make, as they use elastic with a casing, and you have the option to attach lace at the bottom. To make it simpler (in case you, yourself, are new to sewing or in situations where you’re teaching a child how to sew), you might skip the “adding lace” step.
Today’s free printable PDF doll clothes sewing patterns will fit the following dolls:
- 12-inch Baby Alive dolls*
- 13-inch Disney Princess Toddler dolls*
- 14-inch Hearts for Hearts Girls*
- 14 and a half-inch Wellie Wishers* from American Girl doll company*
- 16-inch vintage Velvet dolls from the Crissy family of dolls*
- 18-inch dolls like vintage Crissy*
- 18-inch BFC Ink dolls*

Little Miss Matched dolls* were a product of the Tonner brand of toys. At the time of this publication, to the best of my knowledge, the Tonner company (although no longer producing dolls) still holds the trademark rights to them (™). You can learn more about Robert Tonner’s brand of dolls on Wikipedia or by googling the dolls by name (i.e. “Little Miss Matched — dolls”). Robert Tonner has been known to speak at, and even sell dolls at doll shows, from time to time, but to the best of my knowledge, his company no longer produces dolls.
The Crissy family of dolls which includes dolls like vintage Crissy, Velvet, and other dolls, were produced by the Ideal Toy Corporation, which held the registered trademark for them. That company is no longer producing the dolls, and at the time of this blog post, no known company has purchased the trademark to re-produce these dolls. But if you wish to purchase one, you can sometimes find them on eBay (see link in the first set of bullets).
MGA Entertainment is the company that produced the BFC Ink dolls, and it still holds the trademark rights to them (™). The BFC Ink dolls (aka Best Friends Club dolls) were in production, starting in 2009, but at the time of this blog post, they are no longer available in stores. You may be able to find a used one on eBay, though, if you’re thinking about collecting them (see link in the first set of bullets). These dolls can swap clothes with Crissy dolls, but their bodies are much more articulated. They have very lovely faces.
