Kids of all sizes love snuggling up in a pair of cozy, footed pajamas ... including the 14.5-inch variety, such as our friends the WellieWishers™!
Inspired by our Footie Jammies for 18-inch dolls and also known as a blanket sleeper, these PJs are stretchy and loosely form-fitting. Suitable only for knits with a significant amount of stretch, they can be made of a variety of weights and textures, from thick and furry fleece to thinner, lightweight fabrics. You could even recycle your favorite t-shirts!
Features include a collar with knit facing, front zipper, elasticized back for a slightly more fitted look and optional elastic at the wrists. For a realistic touch, try using textured fabric for the soles. (You wouldn't want your doll to slip!) With easy to follow step-by-step photo instructions, these jammies go together quickly for most confident beginner to intermediate level seamstresses who aren't afraid to tackle a zipper. (Don't worry ... we're just an email away if you get stuck!)
Get inspired by these samples made by our Team Tillie Testers!
• 1/2 yard stretchy knit fabric, such as stretchy polar fleece or heavy t-shirt knit (NOT suitable for fabrics without a significant amount of stretch in at least one direction or your doll will not be able to bend or sit)
• Nylon zipper, 6-inch or longer (will be cut during construction)
• 9 inches of 1/4-inch wide elastic
