Pattern Description: Wardrobe for 18" dolls including 4 skirts, chanel jacket, hoodie, poncho, pjs, shirt and pants. I made the pants only.
Pattern Sizing: For 18 inch dolls- such as the American Girl dolls.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yes it did look like the picture.
Were the instructions easy to follow?The sewing instructions looked easy. I wished I would have re-checked how to put the elastic in. The make a casing method at the end wasn’t the easiest to sew on the sewing machine.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?It was a nice simple basic straight leg pant. The pattern picture reminded me a little of Wearing History’s “Smooth Sailing” pants.
Fabric Used:Navy Cotton
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I didn’t make any design changes or alterations. The pants fit my new addition to my collection, Kit, nicely. I haven’t tried them on my older dolls (circa 1993) but with the elastic waist they should fit fine. I don’t think there is much difference between the ones I had and the Kit I got. Kit has been a previously loved doll so I don’t know when she was made.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I would definitely sew the pants again. I will probably try out the skirts and “Channel” style jacket too. As of right now, I really need to hold off on the sweatshirt. I would recommend the pattern for others wanting to make doll clothes.
Conclusion: Another scrap project complete. I still haven’t made a real dent in the amount of scrap fabric but it is nice to see another piece out of the box.
