My girls adore the American Girl dolls Mike’s mom and grandma gave them for Christmas a few years back. The dress them and un-dress them. This summer we channeled that love into this super-simple sewing project. I designed an 18 inch doll shirt that can be sewn using any knit fabric in only three seams! This means that even beginners can easily sew this shirt!

How to Sew an 18 Inch Doll Shirt

Step 2: Cut Out Your Shirt

Use the pattern to cut out out your shirt. Make sure you place the pattern piece on the fabric so that it stretches sideways, not lengthwise!

Step 3: Sew Your Shirt

Stitch along the dashed lines in the pattern. We used a 1/2 inch seam allowance. Make sure you use a zig zag stitch, because that stretches better! You can add a rolled hem at the collar, bottom of the shirt, and sleeve ends; we skipped this step.

Step 4: Try Your Shirt on Your Doll

Congratulations, your shirt is finished! Find your doll, put on the shirt, and enjoy a new adventure together!

  1. Princess is slowly learning how to sew doll clothes, but hasn’t decided to invent her own patterns yet, which really rather surprises me.
