The School Bell Blouse will give your doll a simple, but stylish long sleeve peasant style shirt that is perfect for cool fall weather and back to school! Dress up the look with a classic Sixth Grade Skirt or dress it down with a pair of Playground Pants (both patterns are available right here in my etsy shop). With an open back velcro close, it’s easy on and off for little hands. Use fun cotton prints or girly lace to stitch up a whole wardrobe of cute blouses for your doll. Choose a cute peplum skirt or a simple flared hem with a neckline pleat. Embellish your blouse with bows, flowers, and buttons for a look that is all your own. The long sleeves feature a high wrist flare while still keeping your doll warm and in style for cooler weather and fashionable enough for holiday parties.
Like all of my patterns, this pattern works as a “learn to sew” project for beginner seamstresses or young girls that want to learn to sew for their dolls. This pattern is also nice for an experienced seamstresses to make a basic doll wardrobe, with lots of mix and match options.
Skill level: Easy/ Confident Beginner
This classic but simple top is very easily made from a quarter yard of fabric (quilter’s fat quarters work great!) in a woven cotton or other lightweight fabric. Mix and match your fabrics and trims for unlimited design options.

This pattern was specifically designed and tested on 16 inch dolls such as Disney Animators ®. Please measure and test the fit on your own doll as there are many on the market and it may not fit the same on all of them. (In fact, my Anna doll is a little smaller overall than her big sister, Elsa, so pants and skirts hang a little lower, as to the sleeve hems). Oh Sew Kat! is not affiliated with Disney. No endorsement is implied. This pattern is also available sized for 18 inch dolls like American Girl®
This listing is for the digital file PDF pattern. My doll, her clothes, shoes, and accessories are not included.

Do you sew? Do you want to? Does your daughter ask you to make new clothes for her dolls? Or would she like to learn herself?
This is where I was with my daughter. She wanted me to make so many things I couldn’t keep the list up! I decided it was time for her to do it herself. (9-11 years old). I created some simple patterns, based on simple designs that would teach her, step by step, how to make them herself. (But do not underestimate the power of a simple design! A new fabric, a shirt underneath, a few buttons on front, a ruffle added…you can create a whole wardrobe and lots of unique looks with just a few basic pattern pieces.) With a few scraps of fabric, and a pattern printed on your home computer, you and your “girl” will be making her dolls into fashionistas!
