Comfy, soft, warm, and timelessly classic.—so many reasons to love anything with a cowl neck! This pattern, by Forever 18 Inches, offers two options to accommodate beginning and intermediate sewing skills. Option 1 features a classic cowl-neck tee with self-banding on the sleeves and bottom edge, while Option 2 has been simplified with plain sleeves and a simple hem. The Option 2 Sleeves can be cut ¾ length or full length.
Two sets of cutting lines have also been provided: one to achieve a closer “girl-style” fit, and another for a looser look for male dolls. Directions for cutting are provided on the pattern pages. When you print this pattern, check to make sure that the scale is correct by measuring the 1” square scale on each page. Set the page margins on your printer to narrow and the print scale to none. When you begin sewing, pay special attention to the size of your seam allowances. This pattern was sized to fit snugly, and accurate seams are important to achieve a good fit.
Special Note - This pattern is designed to fit a Kidz N Cats Doll specifically and will not fit the standard 18 inch doll such as American Girl Doll. A KNC doll is 18 inches tall but has a much slimmer hard plastic body. You can see more info on our Doll Measurements page.
