When you download today’s free, printable PDF sewing patterns for making this cute felt pajama top and these little pajama shorts for your Vogue Ginny dolls, please don’t be confused by the fact that you can see another doll’s image on these doll clothes patterns.
Now you don’t have to use these patterns to make pajamas for Ginny, but that’s certainly one option. These could just be her every-day play clothes as well. It’s a matter of picking the right fabric for the right occasion.
Using flannel for your shorts and felt for the top makes it seem especially pajama-ish! So here are a few links to supplies you might want when you’re sewing this outfit…
You can make your shorts out of cotton or flannel fabric and your top out of craft felt, and you’ll also need some 1/8 inch elastic for the shorts and some size 4/0 snaps for the back of the felt shirt.
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls*:
- Skipper dolls
- Disney’s 10 inch Moana dolls
- Creatable World dolls
- vintage Vogue Ginny 8 inch (20 cm) dolls
