This week I’m re-posting a pattern that I made and posted when this website was brand new! Granted, the pattern was all drawn by hand in pencil, and then I went over it in simple ink pen, but it made a very nice outfit for my daughter’s Breyer Rider dolls, when she was young.
It has been available on this website as a JPG image only, for a very long time, but today I’ve converted it to a PDF for your convenience.
This pattern will help you make a shirt with a collar and a pair of elastic waist jeans to fit 8 inch dolls. To make this project, you’ll need some small print cotton fabric and size 1/0 Dritz snaps for the shirt; you’ll also need some lightweight denim and quarter inch elastic for the jeans.
And in case you didn’t catch it, yesterday’s blog post included my daughter’s tutorial videos on how to make a halter and saddle for a model horse. Here’s a link to yesterday’s blog post, so you can watch those tutorials if they’re relevant to you.
Today’s free pattern will fit the following dolls:
- 8 inch Breyer Rider dolls
- Spin Master La Dee Da dolls
- Hasbro World of Love vintage dolls
- Mego 8-inch female action figures
