Guest Author - Susan Kramer

This is an easy to make one-piece outfit for slim 15 inch to 18 inch dolls such as Raggedy Andy.

This pattern is my original design and may not be used commercially.

To sew shirt

Open out shirt front and back pieces and stitch shoulder seams of back and front together.

Cut a 2-inch slit in center back from neckline down for opening.

Turn up lower edge of sleeves one quarter inch and stitch.

Collar construction

You have 4 pieces of collar. Sew 2 together for each side of shirt. Clip curves and corners and turn right side out. The finished collars are at center front and back. On the back you will have one quarter inch of shirt free for later seam. Look at photos for help lining up collar pieces.

Baste collars to right side of material at neck edge.

Neck facing

All around outside edge turn in one quarter inch to wrong side and stitch.

Line up right sides of shirt and facing together. Facing goes over top collar, too.

Stitch pieces together around neck edge and down sides of back neck slit. This will be all the space the doll will have to get into the outfit. Clip curves and turn facing in and press.

Sew underarm-sleeve seams together.

Pants

Right sides together, sew back seams together. Sew front seams together.

Line up seams to form center front and back and then stitch along inside leg seam.

Turn up pants hem one quarter inch and press and stitch.

Joining shirt and pants

Line up right sides of shirt and pants at waist and sew together.

Turn outfit right side out, try on doll and turn up lower leg and sleeve hems to desired lengths and hand stitch.

Use a velcro dot to make back neckline fastener.

Use a length of one quarter inch wide satin or cross-grain ribbon for neck tie. I sewed this on securely.

Now, enjoy your new outfit!
