Item details

It's time to cozy up for winter. These bathrobes are designed to fit popular 18" dolls. The pattern can be combined in different ways for a wide variety of looks. There are three versions of the bathrobes, in three different lengths, and directions and patterns for the slippers are also included.

View A is the long version to keep your doll warm and cozy. It has directions for making your own piping, which is used around the edge of the collar and bottom of the sleeve cuff. Directions for a detailed pocket with a piping accent are also included. The bathrobe is completely finished on the inside with a contrast facing around the front of the robe and the hem, and ties at the waist with a belt.

View B is a shorter version, which is perfect if you want the legs of your pajamas to show. It has a collar accented with piping, and ties at the waist with a belt. The sleeves also have a piping accent, and the edges are completely finished with a contrast facing.

View C is another longer version, and the hem and collar are finished with a ruffle which can be made of gathered lace or contrast fabric. The unique sleeve has a ruffle finish, with a contrast band peeking out from below. It also nips in at the waist with a belt held in place with belt loops.

The pattern pieces are drawn with a CAD program, and include highly detailed step-by-step instructions with pictures to guide you through the sewing process. This pattern is sized to fit dolls with a chest size of 11-12". Many variations in body size can be accommodated with minor modifications or simply by adjusting the closure placement.

An 18 page pattern in PDF format will be sent to you by instant download after purchase. You must have Adobe Reader to download the file, which is available for free at It is designed to print on standard 8 -1/2" x 11" paper. The basic pattern itself is not difficult, but some sewing experience is helpful. I have rated the pattern "EASY" but it does have set-in sleeves and a simple collar application which take a little sewing skill.

This listing is for a PDF version of the pattern available for instant download. If you use the pattern to make garments to sell, please recognize it as mine, and make one of the tags “Crabapples”. I have lots of people asking for garments made from my patterns, and that way they will be able to find you.
