This pattern came about after our designer tried to find a relaxed fit T-shirt that could be used in layered outfits, for either girl or boy dolls. But every properly unisex, unfitted tee "Pearl" looked at also featured unfitted sleeves — sleeves that bunched up and got in the way of jackets and other outer garments.

Armed with an understanding of the relationship between the pattern armscye curve and the finished sleeve cap, our designer knew she could do better. The result is this pattern, which sports a relaxed, unisex "plain white tee" body as well as a carefully drafted sleeve that fits snugly all the way up to a narrow armhole — ideal for layering under anything you please.

And because we love flexibility, we've also included plenty of options with this pattern — make shirts for girl or boy dolls, with SHORT or LONG sleeves, featuring CREW or V-NECK lie-flat collars.

The CREW NECK T-SHIRT is an EASY pattern, rated for beginners.
The V-NECK T-SHIRT is rated EASY / INTERMEDIATE for the two-step V-neck collar insertion process.

As always, Lee & Pearl's photo-illustrated directions and computer-drafted, guaranteed-to-fit-together pattern pieces make every step as easy as possible.
You do not need a serger to complete this pattern. Directions are included for standard, straight-stitch home sewing machines.



1/4 yard knit fabric

Hook-and-loop fastener (such as Velcro™)

Matching thread

NOTE: This garment is easiest to make using a fairly stable, NON SPANDEX knit. You can also cut the pieces from a store-bought or repurposed human-size T-shirt We've even included directions on using existing T-shirt hems, and finding the best doll-scale motifs and patterns on up-cycled shirts.


Shirts made using this pattern look great with iron-on transfers (either store-bought, or designed and printed yourself on heat transfer paper), crystals, fabric paints and lots of other fun embellishments.

Great pattern from Lee and Pearl, as always. I love how well illustrated it is, very helpful and the shirts fit perfectly. And the "V" neckline option is great, love it. Thank you so much!
