Quilting cotton is a great weight for sewing small, it is not bulky, irons easily, can be used for a large variety of clothes. I am even experimenting with making a few dolls out of tea-dyed cotton (that's for a later blog post). Although small scale prints are easy to find, it can be fun to play with scale and use a larger scale on a small dress. I have several favorite online quilting cotton stores:
I like to use soft squishy knits for tee shirts, leggings and pajamas. I prefer my knits to be from natural materials, this makes them feel good, but to have lycra or spandex, because this gives them 4 way stretch. Four-way stretch helps small hands get doll's clothing on easier. Here's where I find good knits:
I got my order today and I love it, the material is nice, the dresses are beautifully made. I put the astronaut suit on my my life boy doll, and the dress on Rebecca, here is a photo of them in their outfits, I also ordered a puppy for them from the company.
I ordered some clothes for my granddaughter for Christmas. There was a very good selection to choose from. Everything arrived and looked exactly as I expected. I forgot to select a color on an item and they called to ask which color I wanted. I will order again.
I purchased the Laurent Doll Pink-Striped Armoire for my four-year old granddaughter and am extremely pleased with my order. The armoire arrived fully assembled and in perfect condition. It is attractive and sturdy and holds an amazing amount of doll clothes and accessories. I will definitely be a repeat customer!

To get some doll clothes patterns ideas and learn tips and tricks for sewing new clothes for dolls, I went and bought (and checked out from the library) as many dolls clothes pattern books that I could find.
What I like about this book is it has a great introduction that gives details about fitting doll clothes, choosing doll clothes fabrics, and how to master techniques that are useful when sewing doll clothes. For instance, gathering a skirt, finishing a neckline, or using fold-over elastic. (Being reminded of the awesome role of fold-over-elastic in sewing was one of my big takeaways from this book!)
The projects are not all doll clothes; there are some easy-to-sew doll accessories such as a messenger bag, pillowcase, and DIY doll sleeping bag, for example. All in all, there are 14 outfits and 8 accessories, each marked with a difficulty level.
If you want a doll clothes pattern book with paper patterns included, this is NOT the book for you. In order to retrieve the patterns, you have to visit a website to download and print them yourself. (There are 47 pages!)
Thank you, Aly, for posting this review on the doll clothes books you have encountered and love. It is very helpful to know what you found inside these books, and if you found them helpful. I have noted the titles and will look for them at my library. Did you know that you can also acquire books outside of your local library system So you are not limited to what is in your local library. It is call interlibrary loan. Inquire with your local librarian. I also looked at my local fabric retailer and found some McCall patterns for 18 inch dolls. My granddaughter owns an American Girl doll. I have recently acquired one to use as a model to use for constructing clothes for her 18 inch doll. So glad I found your blog.
We're glad you're here! The Pixie Faire Market is a place to buy and sell new and used dolls, hand-made doll clothes, and related accessories. Let's make this the \"go-to\" location for these fun items.
Another friend who saw the outfits asked her to sew a complete wardrobe of doll clothing as a gift. From there, Weber began sewing and selling custom outfits at local craft shows and fairs, and then operated her own doll clothing store in Connecticut for five years.
Weber says Halloween clothes are best-sellers, and she offers a line of boy doll clothes as well. The store also offers doll toys such as beach chairs and tea sets, and accessories like shoes and umbrellas.
Dolls Clothes Cottage is at 1152 B Savannah Road, across from the entrance to Henlopen Gardens in Lewes. Hours vary daily to suit customer needs. For information, email Weber at email@example.com.
This popular deals site always has a selection of clothes that will fit American Girl Dolls at great prices. With outfits, accessories, and some furniture up to 70% off, this should be one of your first places to browse through clothes for your American Girl Doll.
Her other designs are taken from life. She looks at what girls are wearing, reads fashion magazines and designs clothes to go with what is popular now. She recently added clothing for boy dolls as well as girl. She said the little neckties she makes for the boys dress clothing is one of her favorite designs.
The whole thing started 20 years ago when a friend was adopting an older child. Weber, an accountant who liked to sew, decided to do something to welcome the little girl and made her some doll clothes. Everyone loved what she made and she had so much fun doing it, that she decided to make some more. She put together a $1,000 worth of clothing and took them to a county fair. She sold out.
For a child, a doll can be a playmate, an adventure partner, someone to take care of, and a friend when life gets hard or scary. A doll can also invite a kid to celebrate their own identity, explore those of others, and see their wants and needs reflected back to them in instructive and meaningful ways. And experts are zeroing in on another developmental benefit of dolls: their ability to increase empathy.
During our testing, we observed that many toddlers show interest in dolls representing children who are around their same age, or younger, especially when they can see some of their own needs (a bottle, diaper, blankie) reflected back to them.
Compared with cheaper dolls we tested (like the Our Generation dolls), the Ikuzi dolls feel notably high in quality, with hand-molded heads and sturdy bodies and limbs. Add party-worthy outfits, and they feel almost like collectibles. The Ikuzi doll we tested arrived with a head of shiny, bouncy waves, which I immediately felt compelled to stroke, comb, and style into a topknot. Each doll comes in a dress that pairs white tulle or cotton eyelet with a vibrant print inspired by African textiles (the outfits come in kid-size versions, too), as well as beautiful metallic Mary Jane slippers. Additional doll outfits include knit sundresses and leggings sets that would look at home in a Hanna Andersson catalog.
Why we like it: American Girl has been a well-known name in the doll world for some four decades, starting with the small line of historically themed dolls the company introduced in 1986. Nowadays, American Girl has a much wider, more diverse, and more inclusive slate of dolls, including its Truly Me line, which is designed to represent contemporary kids.
Making doll clothing is so rewarding and a great way to use up some of your favorite small pieces of fabric. Here I will give you tips on how to sew doll clothes for beginners including choosing fabrics, cutting, stitching, and finishing It is also a great way to teach kids to sew as most patterns are very simple and don't take long to make. The first thing I ever made was a simple elasticized skirt for my beloved teddy when I was 7. I still remember it so clearly. I don't have the skirt anymore but I do have the teddy!
Doll clothes are expensive to buy and making doll clothing is a cheaper option that is extremely rewarding. It is easy to make doll clothes in simple designs as most styles are simplified to account for the small sizes. Choose simple shapes and make them look different by changing the fabrics you use as well as embellishing with ric-rac, lace and kid-safe trims.
The internet is full of simple free doll clothing patterns and here are a few of mine to get you started. The doll t-shirt pattern is especially popular and a great starter project for making doll clothes. Best of all the sleeves are joined to the body so it really is easy.
Once you have some confidence in making doll clothing, it is time to create a whole wardrobe! Check out my sewing pattern shop for more doll clothing patterns.
