Today’s tutorial video shows you how to make a pair of overalls to fit the 8-inch JC Toys Lil Cutesies dolls and similar baby dolls.
This design project was one of the more ambitious projects I will be doing with my students, in my upcoming Creative Spark class that teaches you how to design your own doll pants. Baby dolls have unique considerations, when designing doll pants to fit them, and in my class, I will teach my students how to work with some of those challenges associated with baby doll pants.

The shirt pattern will be included with the overalls pattern, but I’ll be posting the shirt project’s tutorial video a little later — perhaps at the start of 2023. If we get all the way to February, 2023, and I still haven’t posted the shirt tutorial video, please leave a comment requesting it.
