I realize I’m posting this a little early for Christmas, but if you start your sewing projects now, you should easily be able to get all those doll clothes made and shipped off for Christmas gifts well before Christmas actually arrives.
And if you want to have a little fun with this project, look back at my “North Pole Christmas” stop motion video to inspire you!
To make this holiday dress, you won’t need the sleeve, but you will need both the short and the long skirt patterns. You’ll also need some small-print holiday fabric, lace trim, holiday striped fabric, craft felt, and a feather boa.
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls*:
- Disney Princess 10 inch dolls
- Disney fairy 9 inch dolls (like the little Tinkerbell dolls)
- Momoko dolls
- Petite Barbie dolls
- Skipper dolls
- Project MC Squared dolls
- Creatable World dolls
Here are your free, printable PDF sewing patterns and tutorial videos for making the outfit shown at the top of this page:

Although it’s not shown in the image above, my bloomers pattern is absolutely adorable with this little dress, and these bloomers fit lots of different dolls as well, including the Disney Princess fashion dolls and the 9 inch Tinkerbell fairy dolls. So let me share those patterns and tutorials with you here 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.
