Pleated Peasant Blouse (FREE) - A Smart Doll Sewing Pattern


This pattern is based on a gorgeous, pleated blouse in a navy cotton/rayon crepe fabric that was released with the Winter 2023 chaos bundles. Because it is based on an official Smart Doll design, and is not my own, this pattern is 100% free! 

All digital patterns come PDF format and will print on both standard Letter and A4 paper! Instructions are presented clearly with illustrations as well as tips and vocabulary explanations sprinkled throughout! Pattern pieces are located on the backmost pages, so you do not need to print the entire PDF if you'd prefer saving paper.

Once sewn, the pattern will produce an item that will fit a standard Smart Doll as well as any 1/3 scale (60cm) ball-jointed doll.

You may sell products you make from this pattern. You may not, however, distribute this pattern for monetary gain (e.g. don't sell it, but feel free to email it to friends!).

Special thanks to Beth Ramsden for assisting in testing!
