Are you wishing this pattern was just a little different in its design? That’s what my paid course teaches you: “How to Alter Doll Clothes Patterns.” In fact, we actually use this pattern — YES, this very same pattern — in my course, to adapt the length of the sleeves, making them full-length.
So consider signing up for my paid course, if that sounds interesting to you.

According to Wikipedia (as of 9 January 2022), Strawberry Shortcake “is a cartoon character used in greeting cards published by American Greetings. The line was later expanded to include dolls… The franchise is currently owned by the Canadian children’s television company WildBrain and American brand management company, Iconix Brand Group through the holding company Shortcake IP Holdings LLC.” I was unable to find a website for Shortcake IP Holdings LLC, but I believe they own the US trademark for the dolls, even though I believe my own doll was originally made and marketed by Hasbro.
