I up-cycled this hoodie from a human boy hoodie, and made it almost identical to the big version! I altered this pattern, using Sweatshirt F. I used the back pattern pieces as the front.

I wanted to make a t-shirt that would fit a boy doll today. Boy dolls can fit in girl t-shirts, but they are form fitting and it doesn’t look very boyish. I took this free pattern, and made some changes to it! I lengthened the sleeves, and changed the pieces of the top to go straight, not curve with the cloth body. I also changed the sleeve piece to allow for a baggier sleeve.
This shirt is up-cycled and pressed to get any wrinkles out.
This is my first post that features something sewn for an Our Generation Doll. I introduced this Our Generation Boy Doll in May. Since then he has undergone more touch ups to make him more boy-ish looking. He was originally Sadie.
After doing research, I was unable to find a free drivers cap pattern for an 18″ doll online. I ended up making this drivers cap using this human hat tutorial. The hat pattern originally would have made a hat with a circumference of 24 inches. Seeing how I had to get it down to about 11″, I sized the pattern down a lot.
The outer fabric is wool, with a lining of brown silk. For the brim I used flexible plastic. The ribbon is Offray 5/8″ Torrid Orange.
He was, when we bought him, Sadie. I cut his hair off (I’m not quite finished with cutting it). We also lightened his lip color with non-acetone finger nail polish remover, and trimmed his eyelashes.
I made the shorts for my American Girl Doll at first, but they were so small I couldn’t get them on. Luckily, OG dolls are skinnier (although the same height), and the shorts fit nicely on this guy. Because he is skinnier then an American Girl Doll, I think I will be able to use the girl patterns on him, because they will turn out looser.
The t-shirt is my favorite shirt pattern, because it’s easy and has sleeves. The pattern is from SimplySweetByb.com here. I use it in a lot of outfits. I printed and cut out Perry the Platypus from Phineas and Ferb on iron-on transfer paper. The printer decided to print Perry’s hat green, but it didn’t bother us.
I plan on making him a wardrobe of clothes and posting them!
