Do you love the simplicity of classic tee-shirts? Does the thought of working with knits make your teeth chatter and your knees tremble?
If you fall into this category of seamstress, take heart and have no fear! You’ll have fun creating an easy shell-style tee or dress with a stable woven fabric, and learn a couple of simple techniques for a professional finish. Alternate techniques using bias binding have also been provided for those who prefer not to serge or zig-zag stitch their necklines.
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 create tiny tee-shirts that will impress everyone--and you won't even need to mention that it has an "Easy" rating.
This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 13-14.5 inch dolls such as Minouche™ and WellieWishers™. You can also find this pattern on Pixie Faire for 18" dolls such as American Girl®.
Recommended Fabrics: A lightweight fabric works well with the tee, and a light-to-medium weight fabric is recommended for the dress. All fabrics should be somewhat soft, with a bit of drape. Rayon challis, soft cottons, chambray, and lawn are a few examples.

I made this dress for two of my H4H dolls. One of them was like the pattern picture and the other I embellished with lace and ribbon down the front. I love this pattern and will make more, but I had trouble with the collar both ways. Mine always came out looking awkward.
I LOVE this pattern! I have probably made a dozen since I bought it. There are 7 Wellie Wishers to sew for in my family and I am having a ball making stocking stuffers for the girls.
I LOVED this pattern! My granddaughter wanted a red plaid dress just like the one on the pattern, and I made her one from some flannel I had on hand. So easy and quick to make, and she was thrilled. From someone who is afraid of knits -thanks!
Very good and I love it.Thank you
Directions were easy, but I added 1/4 inch to ung the front and back and 1/2 inch to the bottom. I would definitely make it bigger if a young child will be dressing the doll.
