Item details

The Private School pattern is a layerable pattern with parts that can be worn separately or together: sweater vest, basic shirt and tie (in short and long sleeve) and pants designed to fit snugly across the hips with the shirt tucked in or over them!

'Large' size boys are the dolls that fall into the traditional male counterpart for 11.5" fashion dolls. This is not fitted for 'action figure' type 12" ex (GI Joe, Hot Toys), who are much girthier through the chest and shoulders.

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: Preppy Pants, Dress shirt and tie with no-sew, short, and long sleeve options, sweater vest.
Time to complete: ~60 minutes for full outfit, less if simple versions used
Supplies needed: 1/4 yard fabric, thread, snaps or velcro for closure. Jersey or 2-way stretch fabric needed for vest, non-stretch fabric needed for pant and shirt.

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 to be perfectly tailored Fashion Doll boys


*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 :)

If you're new to sewing or just considering sewing for doll clothes, I have a bunch of free tutorials and tips on my website: http://requiemart.com/blog/doll-clothes/ You can also download the size charts there to make sure you're sewing for the right size if the doll you're sewing for wasn't mentioned above.


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.
