Sew a western cowboy shirt for WWE action figures w/free patterns @ #DollClothesPatterns #WWE

Scroll down to the second set of bullets for the free PDF sewing patterns.

Please read this introductory text, to make sure you understand all the nuances of today’s free pattern!

The WWE Action Figures have really thick necks–which makes perfect sense because they represent professional wrestlers! So I had to make today’s western “cowboy” shirt with a super wide opening at the neck of the shirt.

Therefore, when you try it on GI Joe or Action Man or Broad Ken, you will likely think that the neck opening is too wide. I mean, yeah, they can fit in it, but it looks a little weird on them to be honest.

Now if you’re good at making doll clothes alterations, you can always make some alterations so the neck hole isn’t so wide for these other dolls and action figures. But if you’re not good at alterations, you might want to look for a different pattern.

Or just take my class on doll clothes alterations!

But I digress…

I should also mention, just as it says in the video, this is a complicated project. I don’t recommend it for the beginners out there. An easier project might be my GI Joe camp shirt instead.

To make today’s western “cowboy” style shirt for your dolls or action figures, you’ll need some solid cotton fabric, some small-print plaid fabric, some size 4/0 snaps, and some teeny tiny buttons.

Today’s free printable PDF patterns will fit the following dolls or action figures:

    1. You bet. You wouldn’t have to add all the pockets and cuffs and such. Just make a plain flannel shirt.

      And if you wanted to add an easier collar, have a look at the way I built the collar on this doll dress, using bias tape. It’s an easier alternative to a cloth collar.

      But if you’re going to make a bias tape alternative collar on a flannel shirt for a bigger doll (like a 12 inch male action figure), I would definitely use at least 1/2 inch wide, folded bias tape. Best of luck to you!

    2. Hey Laurel, there’s someone who has been reaching out to me, wanting custom doll clothes for action figures. Would you like me to give them your email? I don’t give out people’s emails, but I can see them in the comments on my “Admin” side of this website. I just wondered if you would be interested in a project like that, since you’re asking questions about alterations.
