75 FREE Doll Clothes Patterns to Sew (Printable!)

I enjoy sewing my own doll clothes because they’re quick and easy to sew, don’t require much fabric, and are great stash-busters. Plus, pattern-drafting for doll clothes is fairly simple thanks to dolls’ general lack of curves and the similar dimensions between brands.

That said, I exhausted most of the patterns from my doll clothes pattern books, my Simplicity sewing patterns, and my self-drafted patterns collection when I was sewing doll clothes for my older daughter.

I needed new wardrobe ideas, so I started looking for free doll clothes patterns to sew and assembled this master list!

(Note: I tried to include patterns for all doll sizes. If you want clothes for Barbie dolls, I have a complete list of free Barbie doll clothes patterns to sew.)

  1. Hi…I recently got the book, My Doll, My Style by Anna Allen and would like to make the Ruffled Tunic Top/Dress (pg. 79) and hoping to find a pattern I can download and print. I’m not good at making my own patterns and would love to make this for my granddaughter.
    I am enjoying your site and subscribed to your newsletter.

    Thank you,
    Sandra Greathouse

    1. Hi! I really love the patterns from that book! (I just finished making a swimsuit for my daughter’s doll.)

      There’s actually an entire online pattern library containing all the associated patterns for My Doll, My Style. The instructions for accessing it should be on page 29 (at least in my edition; page 79 of my book is the “flutter sleeve tunic”) of the book. Once you go to that URL, simply download the pattern, print it, and you’re ready to start sewing!

  2. Wow! Thank you so much! These are exactly what I have looked everywhere for. You are kind and generous to share them with us for free. I so appreciate you!

  3. I sewed many doll clothes for my 2 daughters and 2 granddaughters plus for our local school to sell for certain events, but sadly during a move a few years ago, I gave the patterns away. Now so many patterns run almost $20 each! I have caught a few on sale. Now great grandchildren are being born and thanks to your website and willingness to share, I am able to find patterns. Thank you for being so kind.

  4. Thank you for shortening our search, saving us time! Having children at home, I don’t know how you yourself had time to find all of these sites!

  5. My grandson is getting a 32 inch boy doll for Xmas. Where can I find doll clothes patterns for his doll? What size baby clothes would a 32 inch doll wear?

  6. I looked and looked and couldn’t find any patterns for the smaller Cabbage Patch dolls. Do you have any links and I just missed it?

  7. we are looking for a FREE BOY 18′ patterns for summer shorts and shirts. Can’t seem to find any.
