Cabbage Patch Clothes - Free Pattern


Free Baby Doll Clothing Patterns from GYCT

If your little ones are anything like mine, they love a good baby doll.  Both my son and daughter love to play house and get the "baby" ready for outings and adventures.  I kept my Cabbage Patch doll from my childhood thinking my little ones would enjoy it, and boy was I right.  My daughter spends so much time mothering that I knew she needed another baby to take care of.  So I decided to grab her the baby Cabbage Patch too.  Now she will have two dolls to take care of.

However, their "clothes" are a bit wanting these days.  So why not put together some new clothes?  So that is just what I did.  It was a bit of a trick because the baby is a gift for Christmas.  It seemed like every time I needed to get it out for measurements she came into the room.  But, now it is done and we can wrap it for under the tree.


Lucky for you, I am in a giving mood these days.  I drafted up the patterns and digitized them just for you!  (And for me in the future because I can foresee I will need them.)



Materials Needed:

12" Baby Doll Pattern  OR  17" Baby Doll Pattern
Approximately 1/4 yard of fabric or less
Thread
Ballpoint Needle

I created 3 patterns in 2 sizes.  The patterns include dress, bodysuit/t-shirt and leggings for size 12" dolls and 17" dolls.  If you are not sure what the difference is in the babies, the baby on the left is the 12" doll and the 17" doll is on the right.

Each pattern is designed for use with knit fabrics.  This is to help with the stretch over the head as well as easy care in washing.  The dress and bodysuit are lapped.  This allows for easy fit over the head.

The leggings have a yoga style knit waistband to help with easy fit on and off.

  6. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I have recently picked up a few Cabbage Patch kids dolls at second hand stores for our church's preschool area. The kids love them, but the clothes are SO hard to find these days. I have even started looking for used patterns for CPK clothes, with no luck. This is perfect! I'll be sewing soon!

  8. Hi,
    HELP!! I'm attempting the 12" baby doll dress for my granddaughter's Christmas present, but can't tell if you used a 3/8" seam or smaller on the neckband pieces.
    Thanks

    1. the seam allowance on the neckline, I used a 3/8". You want it to be small but not too small that it doesn't stay in place. Hope that helps.

  11. Thanks so much for posting these! Over the past 15 years, my mom and I have collected around 350 or so CPKs, all from thrift stores, yard sales, flea markets, hAlf or more are naked, and I lost my clothing patterns in a move a few years back. ... this makes me very happy, lol! !
