undergarments for dolls

Because of the sensitive nature of theses pictures,
today there will be a "no Boys" policy,
yes we will be showing underwear for dolls!

We have 2 AG dolls (Kaya and Saige), and 3 Mrs Alexander dolls,
 and only saige came with some panties.
I have purchased a few pairs over the years,
but more were needed.


I have been keeping old but great looking tank tops from Miss C. in the hope to re-purpose them into
some doll clothing, and they are perfect for underwear.



For this training bras-panties set, I used a tank top with "a star is born" French writing.
For the bottom, I copied Saige's underwear, I cut it a little larger on the seat
as I found it a little snug on the back.
I used some lingerie elastic to finish all the edges,
it is one piece with 2 side seams.
For the top, I just shortened the pattern of the strap top from Liberty Jane Patterns.



For this other set of matching training bra and panties,
I used some green knit fabric that I had around.
The bottom was made the same way than the previous one.
The top was made by shortening the tank top pattern of Liberty Jane patterns,
and lowering the neck line.
I used some more lingerie elastic at the bottom of the bra.


With another tank top (one of Miss C's favorite)
I sewed a soft night gown, perfect for a hot summer night 
(it will happen some day, this winter will end!)
This time I lengthened the strap top pattern,
and stitched half of the back.
In another fabric, it could make a cute summer dress.


Miss C. is very pleased with the new undergarments for her dolls.
I must admit, it was totally necessary!

Happy sewing!
