Item details

'Basics 1' is a pattern I put together designed to help people clothe their dolls in jeans & a T-shirt with minimal skill and effort. This is a great pattern for people who want to try out sewing and also for people that hate sewing, but have a bunch of naked dolls lying around they can't afford to buy clothes for! These patterns have been designed to fit and look great with the minimum amount of seams. Even if you hand sew everything, you should be able to put together a full outfit for your dolls in about 30 minutes--and about 15 if you machine sew! If you're more experienced and want all the details and realism of real clothes in miniature, check out the Basics II pattern.

This pattern is designed to fit 1/3 BJD in adult proportions: It fits great on both vinyl and resin dolls like Volks SDGR & Dollfie Dreams (including Dollfie Dream Sisters), the up and coming Smart Doll, and popular lines like Fairyland Feeple 60s in regular and moe! You can check out a sizing chart in the listing pictures and one is also included in the download files.

This pattern is a PDF e-delivered upon purchase. Instant gratification, and no shipping fees! The file is pre-formatted to print at 100% size on both A4 and Letter size paper, so don't let your printer shrink/enlarge it. 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!

Detailed Jeans & T shirt with different neck, collar, and sleeve variations.
Pages: 5 (1 picture, 3 page patterns, 2 instruction)
Difficulty: Easy!
Time to complete: 15-30 mins
Supplies needed: Fabric, thread, fray block, fabric glue (optional but recommended), and velcro/snaps/hook closure type of choice.

The pattern pieces are all labeled, all seams are shown on the pattern pieces and numbered in the order in which you sew them (and referred to in the written instructions). This pattern is 100% original and drafted by me from various 1/3 vinyl & resin doll measurements, and revised until I got them just right.

*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 don't love the construction design of the t shirt but it will do. It is a pretty simple pattern and I can alter it a little to suit my preferences. Nice not to have to make the pattern myself!
