Yesterday I gave you the pattern and tutorial video for making the shirt you see in the image above. Last week you got the patterns and tutorial video for making the high-waisted pants or jeans.
Today I’m putting the whole ensemble together in one place, so you can easily find all the patterns and tutorial videos you’ll need, to make this adorable outfit for your vintage Velvet dolls.
If you’re new to my website, you might want to go check out the vintage Velvet gallery of doll clothes patterns. that I’ve created, because this is just one of many outfits I’ve designed for Velvet, and all of my patterns here on ChellyWood.com are free.
Here’s an image of the whole outfit, and you can see that the jeans are, indeed, high-waisted:
To make the jeans for your vintage Velvet doll, you’ll want some lightweight denim fabric (but it’s also okay to make a pair of trousers or pants with some cotton fabric instead). The pants have a fly, so you’ll also need some Dritz snaps for the closure at the front (shown in close-up below):
To make the cotton, short-sleeved shirt, you’ll need some cotton of course, and here are links to both a solid cotton fabric and a printed cotton fabric, for your convenience. You’ll also need some Dritz snaps for your shirt.
Today’s free printable PDF doll shirt pattern will fit the following dolls:
- 15 and a half-inch vintage Velvet dolls from the Crissy family of dolls*
- 18-inch dolls like vintage Crissy*
Please note: the pants fit Crissy like a pair of ankle-pants.
