Sew a skirt and top for Project MC2 dolls with today’s free patterns @ #DollClothes #SewingProjects

The image shows a Project MC Squared doll modeling a strappy summer top with an elastic-waist skirt that has a flowing ruffle. The entire outfit is made of yellow cotton fabric. The doll stands in front of a garden gate.

For your free patterns and tutorial videos, please scroll down to the second set of bullets.

If you’re thinking you’ve seen this outfit on other dolls, on my website, you’re correct. But this is the first time I’ve posted the patterns as PDF sewing patterns that will fit the Project MC Squared dolls.

The pattern suggests that you cut your straps out of ribbon, but for the tank top pictured on my doll, I actually cut each strap out of cotton fabric. Ribbon works too, though.

So if you’d like to make this outfit for your Project MC2 dolls, you’ll need some cotton fabric and some Dritz snaps. And if you want to make your straps out of ribbon instead of cotton, that’s fine as well.

According to Wikipedia, “Ideal Toy Company was an American toy company founded by Morris Michtom and his wife, Rose. During the post–World War II baby boom era, Ideal became the largest doll-making company in the United States.” They produced the Tammy family line of dolls, including Ideal Pepper dolls, but eventually the Tammy line of dolls went out of production (with the exception of the Sindy doll — the UK version — which has had a recent revival). There have been a complicated series of sales of rights for Ideal toys since then, and you can read about it on Wikipedia, if you’re interested. But at the time of this blog post, the trademark name “Tammy” for these dolls was abandoned and has remained “dead” (according to the US Trademark database) since 2004.

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Shortcake IP Holdings LLC, but I believe they own the US trademark for the dolls, even though I believe my own doll was originally made and marketed by Hasbro.
