NOT! For Knits Tee-Shirt 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

29 reviews   |  

Do you love the simplicity of classic tee-shirts? Does the thought of working with knits make your teeth chatter and your knees tremble? Are the dolls in your life begging you for a fashionable tee, but find you cowering in the woven section of the fabric store?

Relax--now you can hold you head high with confidence, thanks to the NOT! For Knits Tee-Shirt PDF Pattern, by Forever 18 Inches. Specifically designed for woven fabrics, this tee features easy dolman-style sleeves, a rounded hem, a working pocket, and a no-facing neckline. You'll learn how to sew several easy finishes for the hem and neckline, and can even make the tee in a longer dress variation.

Thumb your nose at those stretchy, unpredictable knits while you quickly sew up one adorable top after another. End your days of shame and inadequacy, and fill the closets of little vinyl people and their human friends with classic tees in every hue! The NOT! For Knits Tee-Shirt Pattern will allow you back into their good graces--and you won't even need to mention that it has an "Easy" rating.

NOT! For Knits Tee-Shirt 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

Very easy to use pattern and the step by step instructions with pictures made for easy and fast sewing up. I was happy to learn a t-shirt can be made with a woven, cotton fabric instead of a knit fabric. I now can make t-shirts with either fabric using different patterns of course.

Good Alternative to T-Shirt

This pattern is a cute alternative to making “just another t-shirt”, but is still quick and simple. I used the “bias band” finish and really liked the look. (Made 3 of these in a rather heavier quilters cotton, and want to try in a lighter weight fabric, too.) Instructions were detailed and easy to follow.
