Little Pants and Shirt for Dolls Sewing Pattern


product options:

Miss Maggie Rabbit — and her siblings! — needed some pants and a shirt! So here they are! These little unisex clothes (just put the buttons on one side or the other depending on the gender of your bunny) are sewn by machine and "fully operational"!

This pattern is suitable for advanced beginners and contains illustrated step-by-step instructions and full-size pattern templates. You will need a working knowledge of general sewing techniques to make these clothes. Tiny clothes are not as easy to make as you would think, but if you have patience and motivation, I know you can do it! I had to make three shirts before I was happy with mine, but practice makes perfect.

This pattern does not include instructions or templates for making the animal doll itself. Please purchase animal doll patterns separately.

Please note: All of the clothes designed for the Little Animal Family are interchangeable and will fit the rabbit, kitty, deer, mouse, and fox softie dolls. They will also fit all of the Dovegray dolls.

Separate, individually downloadable PDF patterns are also available for lots of other clothes and accessories so you can add to your doll wardrobe.
