A super comfy one piece

Still in the “let's recycle” wind, I'm proposing here a pattern for a one piece sewn in an old t-shirt. Of course you can choose something else, but be sure to make it in a fabric that stretches because it has to be pulled up without any closing. 

It’s not so complicated, if you have already sewn some clothing for your doll, you will find this one easy enough. The one little difficulty is sewing with knit, if you’re not used to it. My advice is to be very careful when you start and end your stitching, the machine tends to eat up this kind of fabric. If your machine permits it, try a very light zig-zag stitch, it should help feed the fabric.

  1. print and cut out the pattern

  2. pin the one piece pattern onto the t-shirt, grabbing both front and back, line the arrow with the side of the t-shirt

  3. repeat the last step with the neck piece with only one ply of fabric

  4. sew one shoulder

  5. fold the neck piece in 2, pin it to the neckline and sew

  6. join the other shoulder and sew, cut out the exceeding fabric

  7. fold the hem of both sleeves and sew

  8. sew the sides of the one piece from the sleeve to the bottom of the leg

  9. fol the hem of each leg and sew

  10. sew between the legs

  11. clip the fabric between the legs and under the arms

  12. turn your one piece inside out there you go!
