Cowl Neck Tee Shirt 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

18 reviews   |  

Comfy, soft, warm, and timelessly classic.—so many reasons to love anything with a cowl neck! This PDF 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. The pattern also includes information to help you choose the right type of knit, as well as an on-line retail source and a reference for making a home-made fabric gauge to determine the amount of stretch.

Recommended Fabrics:  Lightweight knits with a moderate (no more than 40%) one-way stretch. Jersey knits, bamboo knits, rayon knits, and lightweight sweater knits are just some of the possibilities!


Supplies Needed:
- 1/2 yd. of a lightweight knit (58” wide) with a moderate (no more than 40%) one-way stretch. (Note: if you choose a medium-weight knit, the cowl will not drape as well as it should.)
- Matching thread
- Two medium sized snaps to close the collar
- Two pieces of thin ¼” wide hook and loop tape, about 3” long OR two medium snaps (to close the Center Back)
-Optional: A Ball-Point sewing needle (often used with knits)

Skill Level: Easy to intermediate

Great pattern!

I just finished the second one with bands on the cuffs and waist. Forgot to check my fabric stretch and cut it out of a rayon 2-way stretch fabric. Using the bands on the waist and cuffs make a lightweight knit really fast and easy to more rippled hems! Because my fabric was so delicate and stretchy, I did use tissue paper when sewing some of the seams, and also used 1/2" stay tape under the back edges for more stability before adding the snaps. It turned out great! I would definitely recommend this adorable shirt pattern!
