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.
I set a side a new place to photograph my dolls, that is large enough to include all four of them, as well as a piece of furniture or two. I shot some photos of the dolls in their new-ish environment, trying out different furniture arrangements. The girls are playing with toys 🙂
My Kidz n Cats doll is wearing her flannel winter jammies (made by me), she likes to wear them all day.
My Rebecca doll is wearing her Red Ruffle Jumper outfit. (Made by me)
My other AG doll is wearing a pair of jeans made from the Liberty Jane pattern. Her shoes are made from duct tape. You can read about them here. The sweatshirt I’m not going to say yet, but it’s related to something very exciting!
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.
