PDF Pattern #SS2016-08 "Tanglin Junior School Uniform" to make a doll version of the Tanglin Trust School Singapore (Junior School) uniform to fit standard 18-inch dolls such American Girl®, Florrie, Tonner My Imagination, Our Generation.

This is NOT a typical Swish & Swirl pattern. It was created for mass production of the doll-sized school uniforms of my children's school while we lived in Singapore. These uniforms were sold by my friend and me under the Daisy Dolls brand at the school fairs in 2012-2013 (see one of the photos). Now that I have stopped making those uniforms to order, due to the demand, I have decided to release it as a pattern so some other parents could make these uniforms for their daughters' dolls. In this pattern you will not find any complicated seams. The only hand stitching is to attach buttons, everything else can be done on a sewing machine.

However, I hope this pattern would also appeal to other doll collectors as this uniform can be sewn in other fabrics and would look great (as the examples from my brilliant testers show!).

Note to Tanglin Trust School parents: This pattern is intended for personal use only. Mass production and/or selling this doll uniform at the TTS school is not allowed. If you wish to do it, please contact me.

This pattern was created in collaboration with Ariadne of Ariadne’s Thread (www.ariadne-thread.com).

Design includes:

Wrap skirt
Blouse with front buttons
Relaxed fit
Hair scrunchy
Minimal hand stitching

Pattern features 17 pages of step-by-step instructions with photographs, including tips on how to insert elastic into the skirt and the hair scrunchy.

Supplies needed:

• ¼ yard (¼ metre) main fabric (for blouse)
• ¼ yard (¼ metre) fabric (for skirt)

Wonderful pattern with great, clear instructions. I needed a quick to sew pair of pants for some photos of a knitting pattern I'm writing, and rather than reinvent the wheel I decided to support one of my fellow designers. I ordered the pattern, downloaded it, printed it and finished sewing the pants all within a couple of hours. I used a lovely soft printed babywale needlecord fabric to make the pants and they turned out perfectly. I highly recommend this designer's patterns.

Beautiful results from a great pattern. The scale is perfect for a doll. I changed it slightly for my customer and I was in a hurry to finish it, so I didn't do the embroidery, but I will on the next one.
