Sew summer doll clothes for Disney Princess Toddler dolls w/free patterns @ ChellyWood.com #SewingFun #DollClothes

In this photo, a Disney Princess Toddler doll with platinum blond hair pulled back into a pony tail models a handmade shirt and shorts. The shirt is made of yellow cotton with lace edging the sleeves and the bottom of the shirt. The sleeves also have a darker yellow colored rickrack trim around the sleeves' hem. The shirt's neckline is a square shape. The shorts have an elastic waist that isn't seen in the photo. Under this outfit, the Elsa doll wears a pair of rubber rain boots that are pink with yellow toes and yellow-and-blue spots over the pink rubber of the main part of the boots. If you're familiar with Wellie Wisher dolls, you'll recognize these boots are Wellie Wisher doll boots.

I love the way this outfit looks on my Disney Princess Toddler Elsa doll, but be advised: these patterns were originally designed to fit Hearts for Hearts Girls, not Disney Princess Toddler dolls.

And the Hearts for Hearts Girls are slightly smaller in the hips. So instead of applying Velcro to the back of the shirt, I recommend using snaps for a better fit. Scroll down to the bottom of this blog post to see a close-up image of the back of this shirt on Elsa, to see what I mean.

To make these doll clothes, you’ll need cotton broadcloth fabric, Dritz size 2/0 snapslace trim, rickrack trim, and 1/4 inch elastic.

Also, please note the irregular fit at the back of the square neck shirt, as shown below. In the opening of this blog post, I mentioned that you should use snaps rather than Velcro for this shirt’s closure. Here’s why:

In this image, we see that a Disney Princess Elsa Toddler doll is wearing a handmade shirt that has been sealed shut with Velcro sew-on strips at the back of the shirt, but the Velcro sticks out a little bit (unsealed) at the very bottom of the shirt, where the doll's hips are a little too wide to accommodate the Velcro closure. Had the sewist used snaps instead of Velcro, the closure would look more attractive.

The Baby Alive dolls are produced and marketed by Hasbro, who owns the trademark rights to them (™). Please visit Hasbro’s Baby Alive page to learn more about the dolls, or visit the Hasbro company website to learn more about the company itself.

The Disney Princess Toddler dolls are products offered by the Disney corporation, which holds the trademark for them (™). Please visit the Disney Toys website to learn more about their company and its trademarked toys.

The Hearts for Hearts Girls, Dolls and Games are owned by the Playmates Company International, which holds the registered trademark for these toys. It should be noted, that for each H4H doll purchased, the Hearts for Hearts company donates a portion of their proceeds to World Vision, a global humanitarian organization.

The Wellie Wishers and the 18 inch American Girl dolls mentioned in this blog post are products offered by Mattel, which holds the registered trademark for them (™). Please visit the Mattel Toys website to learn more about their company and its trademarked toys.

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.
