It may be summer in the northern hemisphere, but for all my followers in the southern hemisphere of this beautiful earth, winter is underway. So today’s pattern is for all of you living below the equator!
You’ll need a long-sleeved shirt for your Rainbow High dollies, to keep her little arms warm!
If you’d like to make today’s long sleeved shirt, I recommend using jersey fabric, or just cut up an old T-shirt you were thinking about getting rid of anyway. (It’s better for the planet to re-use old materials, rather than to buy new, when you can.) You’ll also need some size 4/0 snaps.
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls*:
- Petite Barbie dolls
- Skipper dolls
- Creatable World dolls
- Rainbow High 10 and a half inch dolls
- Disney’s 8 and 1/2 inch Doc McStuffins dolls

In case you haven’t heard, my Creative Spark class, “How to Alter Doll Clothes Patterns” is now live on the Creative Spark platform. You can sign up any time you want, and it’s a one-time fee.
And don’t panic if it seems like too much to take on right now — sometimes our lives get really busy. I get that. But for any class on Creative Spark, you don’t have to sign up any time soon. Just sign up when you’re ready.
And there’s no specific time limit to your courses. You can just take your time and learn at the pace that suits you.
