Welcome to the 2nd allnurds Dolly Sewing Crush!
We are halfway through this month’s series.
Time sure flies when you’re having sew much fun. Cheesy pun, I know （●￫‿ฺ￩●）
Sit back and relax as we turn our attention to an outfit that your doll will enjoy lounging in.
Dolly Sewing Crush: allnurds Project #2
We are exploring a comfy yet stylish Big T-shirt from Doll Coordinate Recipe 13 Casual & Unisex on page 110.
In 10 steps your doll will have their new favorite T-shirt.
The directions for the Big T-shirt are written in Japanese.
There are no images to go with the directions, only an illustration with numbers that correspond to the steps.
Your Layout For Sewing Success
Steps 1-5 Making The T-shirt
This section involves sewing the shoulder seam of the shirt together, attaching the collar, hemming & attaching the sleeves to the shirt and sewing the sides.
We had trouble sewing the collar, the sewing lines we marked kept disappearing.
Once we used a better marking pen, the collar went on smoothly.
Steps 6-10 Finishing the Big T-shirt
These steps include sewing the hem of the shirt & side split, folding & top stitching a section of the center back, sewing the back close and attaching the closures.
This project was a bit of a challenge because we used a dark fabric and our markings kept disappearing.
Tip: If you’re new to sewing with knits, I recommend using a light color fabric.
But overall, it’s a comfy shirt for any doll’s wardrobe!
8 loves the loose fit because it allows him to move around without restrictions.

8 looks so cute and comfy in this t-shirt! I can imagine him hanging around and doing all sorts of things in it, from climbing a tree to nestling on a comfy couch and reading.
I totally agree with you Neon, it really is a good look for playing and lounging 🙂
