Let’s sew springtime overalls and a shirt for a Dora and Friends 8″ doll w/free patterns @ ChellyWood.com #springtime #DollClothesPatterns

This is a front view of a Dora and Friends doll (a blond one) modeling a pair of handmade bibbed overalls with a short sleeve shirt. The overalls are made of a bright green cotton, dotted with teeny-tiny white stars. The shirt is made of a slightly bigger printed cotton fabric with a white or yellow background color and pastel flowers decorating the cotton of the shirt's fabric. The flowers come in many pastel colors, from purple to blue to pink, etcetera. The doll faces the camera, with her back to a Manet-style painted backdrop fabric with horizontal splotches or blends of peach, purple, green, and blue colors. The fabric at the little doll's feet is a mottled turquoise blue. Her shoes, which are made of yellow plastic, sharply contrast against the floor. The Chelly Wood dot com logo appears in one corner.

I actually designed today’s overalls in my latest Creative Spark class, “How to Design Doll Pants Patterns from Scratch.” This class only costs $19.99, and you get a free pattern for the 18″ doll (American Girl-sized) version of the overalls with that fee. I think that’s a really fair price for a class, plus a free overalls pattern!

But I’m assuming you came here to download today’s free patterns, and perhaps to follow the free tutorial videos that show you how to make this cute outfit!

Here's a photo of a blond-haired doll from the Dora and Friends doll collection modeling a pair of springtime green overalls with a bib and straps. Under her green overalls is a pastel floral short-sleeved shirt made of cotton. The doll wears little yellow plastic shoes, and she stands in front of a watercolor backdrop in many pastel shades.

To sew today’s overalls project, you’ll need some cotton fabric or lightweight denim fabric, some 1/4 inch woven elastic, and some Dritz size 4/0 snaps.

Remember, if you use the links I provide to make your purchases, it helps finance this website and all of its free PDF sewing patterns!

For the shirt, you have a couple of options. You can use regular cotton fabric, or you can use cotton jersey fabric for more of a T-shirt. Both options will also require the use of Dritz size 4/0 snaps.

Here we see a blond Dora and Friends doll from the side, modeling a pair of bibbed overalls that have been designed by Chelly Wood. This is an 8 inch doll. From the side view, the gathers at the base of the bib seem to puff out just a bit, but the little Dora doll is just as cute as can be in these overalls with a cotton shirt underneath.

Please note that other dolls are pictured on the pattern, but that’s because several dolls can fit into these doll clothes.

Use the short sleeve pattern, not the long one. The long sleeves probably won’t fit your 8-inch Dora and Friends dolls.

Today’s free patterns will fit the following dolls:
