Kids of all sizes love snuggling up in a pair of cozy, footed pajamas ... including the 18-inch variety!
Also known as a blanket sleeper, these PJs are stretchy and form-fitting. Suitable only for knits, they can be made of a variety of weights and textures, from thick and furry fleece to thinner, lightweight fabrics. You could even recycle your favorite t-shirts!
Options for the collar and cuff in this PDF pattern include using the same fabric as the body or a contrasting fabric. For a realistic touch, try using textured fabric for the soles. (You wouldn't want your doll to slip!) Fairly simple in construction, these jammies go together quickly for most beginner-level seamstresses who aren't afraid to tackle a zipper.

I purchased this pattern to make jammies for a Walmart “my life” doll. I used anti-pill plush fleece from Joann, and cotton lycra for the cuffs/neckband. It worked very well. Instructions were clear, and the fit was pretty good. I understand that my life dolls are a bit on the slim side for 18” dolls, so there was plenty of ease, even with the fleece. The only thing I would maybe change next time is to add just a tiny bit of extra length to the torso.
This pattern was very nicely designed; all the parts fit together perfectly. and made a very cute set of jammies. I paired it with one of the bathrobe patterns for a coordinated look.
The pattern went together very well. I did have trouble with the neckline. The direction were clear, it was just me...tried a second one and neckline came out better, but still not as well as I would have liked. I need to practice. What I liked was that the feet fit well, not big and floppy. The legs had room, but not baggy. The body length was perfect, as was the sleeve length. It fit both my modern AG doll and my older, and more plump, Samantha. I used Doodle interlock knit fabric. Very pleased with Matilda's Closet pattern. Pixie Faire patterns are the best!
Loved the Pattern. Easy and Darling!
The pattern instructions were clear precise ... went together without any problems... I find all Pixie patterns excellent. Pauline
