This HalterAlls sewing pattern makes a shortalls outfit that is perfect for spring and summer; the perfect mix of shorts and a cute dress. Whether it’s a stroll to the park or down along the beach, keep your WellieWishers™ doll cool and casual in this one piece romper. Make your HalterAlls long or short, with or without lace, trim, or gathered legs. Have fun with different fabrics. Easy pieces and easy construction make an outfit that is as fun and quick to sew as it is for your doll to wear. The easy “one piece pull on” style and open halter back is very easy for little hands to dress their dolls. HalterAlls are like overalls, but even easier!
HalterAlls for Dolls is an easy to sew pattern to make a halter backed romper. Tie the straps/ribbons at the neck for a classic halter top or cross them in the back like overalls. With ribbon or fabric ties, it's easy on and off for little hands. This pattern is also a perfect starter pattern for girls that want to learn to sew for their dolls, or for more experienced seamstresses to make a basic doll wardrobe with lots of options. This pattern will quickly become a forever favorite!
This classic, simple romper is very easily made from a quarter yard of fabric (quilters' fat quarters work great!) in a woven cotton or other lightweight fabric. Use your favorite fabrics and trims for unlimited design options. The simple front presents a perfect canvas to showcase a special pocket, a favorite novelty fabric or for appliqué, machine embroidery, heat transfer vinyl, iron ons, buttons, trims, ric rac, and fabric painting.
This PDF sewing pattern was specifically designed and tested on 14.5 inch dolls such as WellieWishers™. My dolls have a waist measurement average of 6 inches. It will fit Hearts for Hearts dolls with a looser fit. You may need to adjust elastic or hem lengths. Please measure and test the fit on your own doll as there are many on the market and it may not fit the same on all of them.
Recommended Fabrics: quilter's cotton, lightweight cotton, eyelet, seersucker etc.
-1/4 yard of cotton fabric (fat quarter friendly!)
-2 1/2 inches of 1/4 or 1/8 inch elastic for back
-(Optional) 1/8 yard cotton fabric for banded hem

Super easy, versatile pattern. I make clothes for both Wellie Wishers and Heart 4 Hearts dolls and it's such a treat when I can pop out the clothes all from the same patterns. Extra plus is how fast and easy the pieces sew up. I even modified one jumper into a dress and it came out equally as well. Patterns are very detailed and gives so many options for many different looks. Will be making a bunch of these for the dolls. Thanks Pixie Faire for having so many patterns at our fingertips.
Terrific pattern! So sweet! Excellent directions and well illustrated! I wanted to simply use velcro closure on the straps behind the neck instead of ties, so I simply lengthened the straps a bit on the bodice piece and used velcro to close, and avoided using the pattern piece for the straps. I think I will add 3 inches to the leg length and try making some palazzo pants in maybe some fancy fabric! So many different options with this pattern! Love it!
These Halteralls are as cute as they are fast and easy to make. Every Doll needs one in every color! I never get tired of sewing them! I had a question and Oh Sew Kat was very prompt in answering it.
