Even dolly deserves a comfy outfit 🙂
To complete the outfit I made a simple skirt with an elastic waistband. Anne has dubbed this the “Aunt Katy” outfit because green is her aunt’s favorite color 🙂

  1. Please email me the doll tee pattern. When I add it to my cart, I am charged for it. You promised it would be free. I love it for my granddaughter’s doll. Please honor your promise. I received your newsletter today.

    1. When you signed up for the newsletter, you should have gotten an email with a code for the free patterns. It’s also in the Facebook group, which I found easier. The code makes all the patterns on the freebies page free! And I’ve found the FB group really helpful 🙂

  2. Maybe I am late to the game but I cannot download the free doll tee shirt pattern. Maybe when I get it, I will come back and buy the darling strawberry knit fabric.

  3. Bonjour. Je suis intéressée par ce modèle mais quand je clique sur le lien pour télécharger le patron, j’arrive au patron payant. Est-il toujours gratuit, et comment l’obtenir? Merci

  4. I’ve been looking for a great long sleeve doll pattern for free. Thanks so much. However, when I click on the photo I just get a larger photo and no pattern pieces. Can you email me the pattern? Thank you!

    1. Here is the link to it over in the pattern shop. Just add it to your cart, check out (there is no charge), then a download link will be sent to your email.

  5. When I click on the pattern pieces and print, the little square does not measure at 1 inch. It is about 3/16 of an inch shy. By increasing the size to 120%, the square measures 1 inch, but then the pattern pieces do not fit on the page. Do you have a solution for this? I really like the tee pattern, and the dress variation, as well.

    1. Hi Scarlett,
      You can actually just click on the picture in the blog post and download the image. I also e-mailed it to you in case you can’t get that to work.

  6. That’s a very cute dress, thanks for sharing the pattern. What are the seam allowances? I’m guessing 1/4″, is that right?

  7. For those of you having problems printing…when you click on the pattern, click on it a second time to expand it. Then it prints out perfectly.

  8. really like this pattern but it prints toooo small. Can you send me a file with real size? I really would appreciate it
