Simple and free Tiny Betsy McCall sewing pattern

I've been experimenting sewing for my Tiny Betsy McCall over the past few days. I managed to buy a pattern for a whole wardrobe, but it looks a bit daunting to me as I'm more used to winging it with my sewing!

I was very happy then to find the following article on Bella Online with a pattern and full instructions to make this simple dress to fit Tiny Betsy and other 8 inch dolls...

If you click on the pic you should go straight to the appropriate page ^-^!

And while we're on the subject of Tiny Betsy McCall, my Peggy has dicided that she doesn't want to be Peggy anymore. Her name is now 'Bunty'. :)

  1. I've now decided that I must have a Tiny Betsy McCall doll! Thanks for sharing all of the cool websites--you really do find the best of the web!

  2. Hi Analee, thanks for taking the time to comment, I'm glad you've decided to come over to the Betsy MCall side, they are truly adorable ^-^! I'll look out for pics on your blog!

  3. Bunty! What a darling name!

    This is a very cute dress. You did an excellent job with it! She looks very elegant and ready to go to a lovely tea party.

    I've just seen a photo of the teeny eensy weensy gloves that someone actually knitted for the Coraline figures in the movie. Astoundingly small.

  4. I got a tiny betsy for Valentines Day, or at least, it's on its way from ebay land!

  5. Thanks Bella, unfortunately I didn't make this particular dress, it's just to illustrate *blushes*...

    I'll have to look out for the teensy gloves, hard to imagine how it could be done! I'm just learning to knit but I'm a bit ham fisted I'm afraid, lol!

    Hi again Analee! COngrats on your new Betsy McCall, I hope you'll share pics when she arrives!

    Holly xoxo
