These cute and cozy pajamas designed to fit 14.5 inch WellieWishers™ dolls are a fast and easy sewing project - perfect for a beginner!
The top includes a raglan sleeve design and can be made with a contrasting fabric for the front. Chiffon, silk, or even a stretch lace will also work nicely as an optional overlay as well. Using a sweatshirt or fleece knit with no overlay will make a great basic top! Binding on the neck, cuffs, and waist solve the problem of stretched out hems! This design can work well for a boy or a girl doll too.
The basic pull on pajama pants can be made from a woven non-stretch fabric like cotton or flannel. Mix and match patterns to coordinate with the top! The design goes together quickly and is easy to sew with a few straight seams and a simple elastic casing.
Create a variety of outfits with these two versatile pieces. There are so many wonderful options to play with!

As mentioned in other reviews...the partial opening in the back made it impossible for me to get on over the dolls head. And the cuffs seem a bit tight, but did work (tried on before sewing up the back). So getting ready to remake top with Velcro opening in back. Additionally, since I'm doing Velcro closure on the back I'm going to make back opening a 1/4" wider to allow for overlap of Velcro. Shirt seems to snug not to do this.
The top was easy to make with some trial and error. I used a Seeger for most of my seams and needed to lengthen the sleeves about a 1/4" and widen the neckband by a 1/4". I also didn't like the back closure. I had a hard time getting the shirt on the doll with only a partial opening. I ended up remaking the sweatshirt with a full Velcro strip / opening in back and added a half inch to the length. I was happy with it in the end after my modifications. Cute pattern especially with a lace overlay. I haven't made the pants yet.
I did not use the pattern because I made a mistake. My intention was to buy a pattern for the 18" doll. My fault.
