Charlie's Shirt 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

8 reviews   |  

This pattern, by Genniewren Designs, is for a men’s shirt sized for 18 inch dolls. The traditional shirt has a button band, lined yoke, curved hem, left breast pocket, grandad or standard collar, and a choice of short sleeves or traditional long sleeves with cuffs.

The shirt is loose fitting enough to give the impression that your doll has “borrowed” her big brother’s shirt. The fastenings have been created “man style” to further the impression that your doll is wearing her brother’s shirt, but if you prefer you can swap the fastenings over to the “girlie” side. The choice is yours.

Men’s shirts were popular fashion choices for women in the 1980s and were often worn jazzed up with a big belt or loose over a dress or boilersuit.

This PDF pattern is a great way to learn pattern matching techniques (for the shirt pocket), and the shirts will prove a great wardrobe staple for your doll.

Great shirt

I love this pattern. The directions are well written and easy to follow. There aren’t many patterns for boy dolls so I was very excited when I found this one. It looks great with the tail coat and pants pattern I also found. Thank you again for all your great patterns.

Charlie's Shirt 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

I just completed making the Charlie's Shirt and it turned out perfect. The directions were easy to understand and the pieces fit together very nicely. The fit is nice on all my grand daughter's dolls. I plan to make lots more of these little shirts.

Excellent "boyfriend" shirt pattern

The pattern directions were very clear, the shirt turned out perfectly and it looks especially good in men's shirting fabric. The size didn't need any adjustments, either. Usually I end up making notes on patterns to indicate what needs to be changed but this pattern has no notes.

Charlie's Shirt

I absolutely love this pattern. Once I used it a couple of times, it became very easy to use. I added a little length to it, but it is a wonderful shirt. Thank you.
