Bundle | Skirt and Crop Top | Betsy and Tilly
Our doll sewing pattern bundle is perfect for an afternoon with your sewing machine. The Tilly crop top with flutter sleeves and the Betsy skirt match the girls versions perfectly but have separate instructions and also differ a little in the way they are put together. It would have been easy to just present the same instructions, but where would be the fun in that? So here, I am introducing a few new methods that make for smooth sailing for all beginners sewists. Both skirt and crop top are perfect for mixing and matching fabrics. The skirt has an optional hem trim, perfect for embellishment and embroidery.
The pattern is supported by a step-by-step guide (eBook) and easy-to-follow video tutorial, excellent if you are a little unsure about some of the steps. I would always recommend you take what you think you can do and stretch it a step further. That way you will learn so many new skills. Be brave and start today.
All the videos for the doll collection are available for free on YouTube and at the Sewing Academy, so you can have a look before you purchase the pattern. Watch the main video tutorial now by scrolling down to the video section and enjoy. Once you join the course, you will have access to a few more videos we borrow from the full girls version. Enjoy!
This PDF pattern is designed to fit 18″ dolls such as American Girl® or Görtz (46-50cm). If you are in any doubt that your doll will fit this dress, these measurements will help.
Chest: 28 cm / 11 inches
Waist: 27 cm / 10.6 inches
Front length (shoulder to waist): 10 cm / 4 inches
Medium weight fabrics such as sateen, denim and linen. I added some of the fabrics I used for the vintage collection and the doll’s collection to my Amazon Influencer Shop. You can also check out the fabrics by Modes4U, a lovely shop we support. They are reasonably priced and shipping is about 10 days. Well worth waiting for, especially if you order one of their free shipping bundles.
