I understand that Isabelle is a dancer so we best get her outfitted! Kanani would like to learn to dance too so we will make her an outfit too. I will get to the tutu’s at a later date. I started out using the camisole pattern by Dollar Doll Clothes. I added ¼ “across the top and ¼” on to the fold. I cut at what she has marked ‘fold line back’ as I did not want any casing at the back. Again, this pattern was adjusted for 4 way stretch fabric. I cut ribbing about 6.5” by ¾” wide for the armholes and continued it into straps. I started at the back then tried it on the doll before attaching the straps to the back. Then I added a strip of interfacing before adding the Velcro.
American Girl Doll Tights Tutorial
I couldn’t a ‘free’ pattern for tights so I created one! I started out using Dollar Doll Clothes pattern for Pants/Pajamas. I cut ½” away from the fold side as I wanted them to fit tight. I added 2” to the length and rounded that. I left the waistband as is. Cut two. You must use 4 way stretch fabric!
|Sew one crotch. Lay 9” of ¼ or 3/8” elastic on right side and serge.|
