Today I’m sharing the pattern and tutorial for making a cute little raglan-sleeved T-shirt (sometimes spelled tee shirt) and adorable teeny-tiny underpants that will fit 10 inch dolls like Disney Princesses, Petite Barbie, Project MC Squared dolls, and Barbie’s little sister, Skipper, among other dolls in this size range.
To make today’s shirt and underwear, you’ll need some very stretchy jersey fabric, some underpants that you’re happy to get rid of (maybe you bought some that didn’t fit you — I do that sometimes!) and some size 4/0 Dritz snaps.
The snaps are for the back of the shirt, which as you can see in the image below, fits just a bit loosely. So if you’re actually sewing it for a Disney Princess doll, you could get away with using Velcro instead of snaps.
Now, I mentioned that you’ll need some underpants that you no longer want. That’s because the tutorial video for making the panties suggests that you use actual underpants to cut out your pattern.
If you look at this close-up image, you’ll see that the casing for the elastic has been sewn by a sewing machine, whereas the hem at the leg holes has been stitched by hand:
That’s because I cut my pattern out along the already-sewn elastic in a pair of underpants that just didn’t fit me. What else can you do with them, when you buy underwear that doesn’t fit right? I mean, the store won’t take them back because they’re, well… underpants!
So why not use the fabric? Right!?! So there you go! Make a pair of underpants for your doll!
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls:
- Disney Princess 10 inch dolls
- Momoko dolls
- Petite Barbie dolls
- Skipper dolls
- Project MC Squared Dolls
- Spin Master Liv dolls

You’ll notice that the T-shirt pattern page also includes a pair of pants. I tried them on my Merida doll, and yes, they do fit her. So that’s a plus!
So if you have time, please consider pinning the following JPG version of my pattern to your Pinterest page or think of some other way to share it on social media somehow. It really helps my website grow, if you help spread the word!
