Yesterday I gave you the free pattern for the long-sleeved shirt, along with the video tutorial showing how to make it. And at the end of September, we looked at how we can take these pants and turn them into cargo pants (watch for that option when you view the how-to-make-these-pants video).
Today I’m combining the two, to form an entire outfit for your 9 inch Tinkerbell fairy dolls and similar-sized dolls.
To make this adorable little long-sleeved shirt for your 8 inch or 9 inch fashion dolls, you’ll need some cotton fabric and a few Dritz size 4/0 snaps. For the pants, you’ll also need some cotton and a wee bit of 1/8 inch wide elastic for the waist.
I also mention the little Fiskars Stitchers snips that are ideal for clipping corners in both the pants tutorial video and the shirt video, so I wanted to be sure to include that link as well, in case you don’t already have a pair of Fiskars Stitchers.
With Halloween right around the corner, you might want to consider pairing this long-sleeved shirt with the Halloween cargo pants we made a couple of weeks ago. But if you use a Halloween print for the pants, you might want to use a solid cotton for the shirt.
I don’t want to end this blog post without reminding you about how stinkin’ cute those little cargo pants were from a couple of weeks ago…
Just for inspiration, here’s a photo from that earlier blog post:
