Today’s blog post is actually a re-post of one from about a year ago. It’s not a bad idea to remind my regular followers that I have some teeny-tiny doll clothes patterns available as well as the patterns for bigger dolls. So that’s what today’s blog post is all about.
Today’s pattern for a sun dress will fit the regular-sized vintage Kenner Strawberry Shortcake dolls, as you’ll see below:
And it will also fit the smaller, “baby” or “toddler” sized vintage Kenner Strawberry Shortcake dolls:
I’m confident when I say that today’s pattern will likely fit any of the Kenner Strawberry Shortcake regular-sized and toddler-sized dolls from the 1980’s, but it won’t fit the larger “villain” or “adult” character dolls.
You’ll notice that the dress fits my 3 and a half inch Butter Cookie toddler doll like a long dress, whereas it fits Blueberry Muffin more like a play dress. Be aware of this difference when deciding whether or not this pattern will work for you.
Which dolls will fit these doll clothes?
- Mattel’s Kelly dolls (3.75 inches or 10 cm)
- vintage Kenner Strawberry Shortcake 5 inch (13 cm) dolls
- vintage 3.5 inch Kenner Strawberry Shortcake dolls (10 cm)
- some dollhouse-sized dolls that look like children (1:12 scale)
