Sew a pretty sundress for Tammy or Sindy w/free patterns @ #SindyDoll #DollClothesPatterns

In this photo, we see an Ideal Tammy (same doll body mold as vintage Sindy) modeling a pretty pink sundress with white flowers and straps. Her long auburn hair looks like a recent re-root, and she wears silver plastic shoes. She stands in front of a mottled blue background, on a wooden floor.

I’ve been told that vintage Tammy dolls and vintage Sindy dolls used the exact same body molds, but I can’t be sure about that. However, they certainly look a lot alike!

And yes, I’ve had my niece re-root my vintage Tammy doll’s hair. I think it turned out really lovely!

The tutorial for making this pretty floral sundress is unlike some of the other sundress tutorials I’ve created because it’s designed to hide your skirt’s gathers inside the bodice of the dress. This makes it a little more difficult than most of my other sundress patterns. That’s why the free pattern is marked with four flowers.

To make this doll dress, you will need cotton fabric and Dritz size 2/0 snaps.

Liv dolls were products designed and distributed by the Spin Master company, which still makes dolls and toys today (although the Liv dolls are no longer in production at the time of this blog post). The Spin Master company held the trademark for the Liv Dolls (™). Please visit the Spin Master Toys and Games website to learn more about their company and its trademarked toys and games. Please be aware that the Chelly Wood animated doll is a Spin Master Liv doll that has been re-painted and had its wig colored to appear to look like the real doll clothing designer, Chelly Wood. This was done as a creative project by Chelly’s daughters, and the Spin Master Toys and Games company was not involved in the doll’s makeover in any way.

Sindy dolls were originally created by Pedigree Dolls & Toys, but they have been made by other manufacturers including Hasbro, Vivid Imaginations, and New Moon. Currently (at the time of this blog post) a limited number of the newest version of these dolls is being manufactured by Kid Kreations of Staffordshire, England. I haven’t tried my doll clothes on this newer version, but sewists have told me my Tammy doll patterns do fit the vintage Sindy dolls created by Pedigree Dolls & Toys. Please visit one of these toy companies’ websites to learn more about the toys they produce.

Ideal Toy Company owned the registered trademark for the entire Tammy family of dolls, but that company is no longer in business. I’m including links to the Wikipedia pages on these topics for anyone who would like to research these dolls.
