Small doll clothing free patterns

Not all dolls are Barbie and Skipper size, some of them are quite a bit smaller. In fact, my Daughter has a whole dollhouse that came with several 3-4 inch dolls.

I came up with all these patterns, mostly by working and reworking them over and over again, so the patterns are copyrighted by me, Anna Merlini, 2013. You can use them to make your own doll clothes but please give me credit for the pattern. You can’t use the patterns to make clothing to sell.

For a small doll bed, see my blog: https://erythrocyte.wordpress.com/2013/07/21/crochet-doll-bed-free-pattern/

Knit Doll Skirt

Here’s a skirt pattern. The fuzzy purple yarn doesn’t help you get a feel for the “A” shape of it, so I included a faulty previous model beside it so you can see what’s going on. The pink one was too small, then it was on to purple-fuzzy because I’m using up scraps of yarn for these tiny projects.

Knit, crochet or sewn doll pillow
