‘Sew’ did you have fun using my patterns from Part 1 to make doll clothes for your Bitty Baby and Bitty Twin dolls? Well, I’m back with Part 2 of this blog series to show you which of my doll clothes patterns will fit the Bitty Baby and Bitty Twin dolls with only slight adjustments. I will explain exactly what each of these adjustments are.
I feel confident that you will be able to do these minor adjustments yourself as they are mostly just shortening hems or straps. Where I have suggested shortening the length of a pattern piece, for example the One Piece Swim Suit, this simply requires you to fold the pattern pieces and smoothing out the join. If you need to shorten them 1/2” (12mm) draw a line at the waist and another line 1/4” (12mm) above the first line. Fold along the bottom line and then bring the pattern piece up as you fold along the top line. The picture below shows the two lines that have been drawn on the front piece and then the back piece after it has been folded along these lines. You then simply smooth out the curve when the fold is. Shortening the overalls will work the same way.
