I’ve received such an awesome response to my first blog where I showed how easy it was to create 13 Inch Disney Toddler patterns and 14 ½ Inch Wellie Wishers patterns by resizing the bonus doll clothes patterns that come with my How to Sew Doll Clothes course that I’ve been encouraged to continue with Part 2. I have also been advised that reducing my patterns to 65% and doing the same adjustments mentioned, the clothes fit the 13 1/2 inch Dianna Effner Little Darling dolls too which is great news.
In this blog I will show how to alter some more of my 18 Inch and American Girl doll clothes patterns.
All patterns in this blog were printed to 65% of my 18 Inch and American Girl doll clothes patterns. The following table shows you what additional adjustments were made.
DISNEY TODDLER DOLL
WELLIE WISHERS DOLL
Print at 65%
This photo shows the Disney Toddler Pyjamas on the Wellie Wishers doll so additional length is added in the comments below.
Add 1/8” (3mm) to width of collar. Add to ½” (12mm) to hem of shirt. Cut the sleeve at the Australian Girl length.
Add ½” (6mm) along the top of the pattern and 1¼” (3cm) to the hem.
Use 6” (15cm) of ¼” (6mm) Elastic for waist.
