Item details

While the 'standard' fashion doll is the doll with the most readily available fashion packs, mass-manufactured clothes rarely look as good as handmades. Just check out the comparison shot in the item photos for the difference between the made-in-China fashion pack jeans and the ones made with this pattern! This is a beginner-oriented pattern set. It is VERY easy to sew, either by hand or with a machine, and has two sets of pants patterns so you can increase the difficulty and options to have pants as detailed or simple as you want them

This pattern fits your basic 11.5" modern fashion doll: Babs made after the 90s, Princess dolls, and other fashion dolls of the same size.

This pattern is a PDF e-delivered upon purchase. Instant gratification, and no shipping fees! Pattern is on a universal size that should print out at 100% on both Letter and A4 paper. There is no DRM, so you can print from your home, a friend's house, a library, print shop, wherever is most convenient for you!

Patterns included: Basic pant, Detailed jean, T-shirt
Pages: 7 (2 pattern, 2 pictures, 3 instructions)
Difficulty: Easy
Time to complete: ~1 hour per outfit or less
Supplies needed: Fabric, thread, velcro/snaps/hook closure. Sandpaper between 200-800 grit for faux distressing denim.

The pattern pieces are all labeled, all seams are shown on the pattern pieces and lettered in the order in which you sew them (and referred to in the written instructions). This pattern is 100% original and drafted by me to be perfectly tailored to Medium sized fashion dolls.


*please do not redistribute pattern*
I don't mind if you sell dresses made from my patterns (though I prefer to be credited) but this pattern did take me a long time to make, and costs less than a single made-in-China fashion pack at the toy store. If you want to see more patterns--and I'm happy to take requests--support the pattern-makers :)

FAQs

If your device/browser didn't give you a popup, check your order confirmation email for a link. You can also check your order history, where your invoice will have a link to any digital items to download. If that doesn't work, check out Ety's more in-depth help article here: https://www.etsy.com/help/article/3949

Most common problem is printer settings. Make sure your printer is set to 100% and is not set to shrink/enlarge to fit! Second most common problem is fabric. If you use a fabric that is not what is recommended, it might not fit (either too thick a weave or not stretchy enough, etc) Finally... make sure your seam allowances are what the pattern calls for. You CAN adjust the seam allowance (see next FAQ question), but you can't just sew a different one than what is included in the pattern and get the right fit.

Yep! Step 1: Cut out your pattern pieces. Step 2: Trace your pattern pieces onto new sheets of paper, giving each a lot of space around them. Step 3: Take your ruler and measure out an extra 1/8” (if you want a ¼” total seam allowance) or ¼” (if you want a 3/8” total seam allowance) all around the edge of the pattern where it is marked with a solid black line aka a cut line. Make a bunch of dots, as close together or far apart as you need them. Step 4: Connect the dots. Tada! You have a new cut line for your patterns. Don’t forget to mark where any patterns will need to be placed on a fold. Remember: if you do this you will need to trim the fabric back and use fray block. On small dolls, big seams mean bulky, ill-fitting clothes

If you don't have a machine, you can sew them all 100% by hand. Small doll clothes need precise sewing, so hand sewing is sometimes even faster than using a machine!

You can read a full FAQ which spells out what dolls are in each size here: http://requiemart.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/RAD-Pattern-FAQ.pdf There's also a bunch of sizing charts with measurements at the Requiem Art Designs website, www.RequiemArt.com

Between your device, operating system, programs, and printer, every configuration will be slightly different. The most reliable way is to print out the pattern at 100% and go to your local library, print shop, or anywhere else that has a photocopier and use the % setting to resize your pattern. If you can’t figure it out with your computer and can’t get to a photocopier, you can order a print service in the Etsy shop for any pattern you have bought previously (just note which in the comments). I can get it done for you, but since you have to pay for shipping and I have to pay for Etsy/payment fees, it’s almost always cheaper for you to get it done locally.

Sure! I let people sponsor patterns (you get the pattern you want, but a copy also goes into the shop) for $75 for regular sized patterns (most patterns). If you would like exclusive use of a pattern, my rate is $20/hr and it takes between 10-20 hours to develop a pattern.

Currently, no. Just about every sewing technique (ex "Gathering", "how to sew in a sleeve" etc) is already covered on youtube extensively, and pretty much the same in human size as doll size. If you're a beginner, I recommend looking up those if you need help, because videos on specific techniques are more in-depth and helpful to beginners, whereas videos I make would just reiterate the written instructions already included in every pattern.

    I love love love this pattern. Very easy to use. The only thing I had to do extra is create darts in the back or the front. I actually prefer putting my darts in the back especially if you are doing the hip pockets. Just looks cleaner. Putting the darts made these jeans fit perfect. I think I have made a total of 9 pairs of jeans now. LOL I wish I could post a photo in this review. Very satisfied customer

    I bought this to sew clothes for my daughter's Disney Princess dolls. I wasn't aware of the huge change (Mattel to Hasbro) and she has newer dolls. Gwen responded to me so quickly when I asked questions and figured out what I needed and got me the correct patterns. Her patterns are seriously impressive - they are super detailed, fit perfectly and you could make such fashionable pieces. I was able to follow the instructions with no problems. Because I'm sewing for a child, I ended up changing the long sleeved shirt up so she can dress the doll herself. It looks a bit baggy, but she loves it! I am so glad I decided to buy patterns vs trying to design one myself - I never would've come up with anything remotely close to this!

    Thanks so much, a sewing pattern that I was actually able to complete. My attempt was not perfect but I still got a pair of doll pants, I'll attempt this a bunch more times and probably be back for more patterns. Thanks again!
