12 Inch Corolle Calin in bodysuit with Floppy
are instructions for making a one piece bodysuit to fit 11 to 13inch (28.5 to
32.5cm) Corolle Calin, and small baby dolls with similar body types.
It is for boy small baby dolls.
The best feature, in my opinion, is the bodysuit can be used as underwear to keep the doll's cloth skin clean, as it just covers the cloth parts of the doll.
Also it can be made up in patterned fabric as light weight summer wear outdoors.
You’ll need one quarter yard (one quarter meter) of material. If using a different fabric for the lower and upper portions than you'll need a small amount of each fabric.
Two sticky dots for front shirt and back shirt closing, (no buttons for kids doll clothes, please).
Bodysuit Sewing Directions:
Photo below is Corolle Calin with one quarter inch side seams.
This is a very easy to make bodysuit pattern with just 1 piece. The pattern piece is below. Cut 4 pieces of the pattern. 2 for front and 2 for back.
To divide pattern in half horizontally to use 2 different fabrics as I did in the featured photo, cut the pattern at the waist on the pattern piece at the horizontal line just above the words "1 square" and add one quarter inch seam allowance when cutting out fabric.
Sew the top
and bottom pieces together before sewing the center seams together.
I also sewed the waist trim ribbon on before sewing the center seams together.
Sew center back seams together beginning 2 inches below bottom tip of diagonal neckline.
Place good side of front and back toward each other and sew underarms all the way to bottom hem on both sides.
Sew front to back at shoulders.
For all hems roll edges in 1/8 inch twice and blind seam: Lower legs, lower sleeves and all the way around front center up to neck, around neck, down to back center, up to neck around to front and back to starting place.
To finish sew a sticky dot on center of front and back opening.
Having openings in front and back makes the body suit easy to put on and take off.
The pattern is traced onto 1 inch (2.5cm) squares of graph paper. You can try printing out the patterns and see if the squares are 1 inch square, then cut out the pattern.
Pattern piece includes 1/4 inch seam allowance unless noted differently.
Body Suit Pattern:
These pattern is my copyright but you may use it for personal use and gifts but not commercially. To make the pattern draw a grid of one inch squares on and 8.5 by 11 inch paper. Then draw the pattern on the grid.
The full size pattern along with lots of others is available in my PDF ebook: Boy Doll Clothes, 18 Inches and Smaller with Full Size Patterns.
