Baby Sister's Sleeper Outfit 8" Baby Doll Clothes Pattern

5 reviews   |  

This very versatile Pattern by ReadCreations is designed for the small 8" baby dolls from the "Caring for Baby Set" from American Girl® and similar sized baby dolls. This pattern comes with a bonus hat and many different options:
- Neck: folded-over or with cuff
- Sleeve: no sleeves, short sleeves, long sleeves with or without cuffs
- Feet: footless or with feet
- Closure: hook-and-loop tape or snaps

Even 18" dolls need to be moms and big sisters from time to time and need to have some clothes for their little charges and a Sleeper is a must for any wardrobe.

There are also instructions on how the pattern can be adjusted to fit wider soft-bodied 8" dolls as well. Different doll measurements are provided within pattern.

This pattern does NOT fit 15" Bitty Baby® or Bitty Twin® dolls.

Baby Sister's Sleeper

I had the great pleasure of testing this oh sew cute pattern. It is such a fun and easy sew and your baby will sleep in great comfort with this adorable sleeper. The instructions and pics guide you through the steps so easily. Your baby girl needs this sleeper, so try it out several times. There are many options to use for sleeve length, front or back closure and cuffs or no cuffs.

Just the hats, so far

I loved making 2 of the hats and though I should have gone to bed 2 hours ago, I am about to begin the front closing sleeper because I am SEW pleased with how detailed the photos and descriptions are and I am eager to continue. I ordered the Caring for Baby last night after I spotted this pattern and I am sitting near the window just in case the stork arrives!!! Hoping to see more patterns for this particular doll by this designer!!!!!!!!!
