Classic Cardigan for 18" Dolls


I have updated my skivvy and t-shirt pattern. Some improvements are:

  • Combined long and 3/4 sleeve pattern so you only have to print one and fold it up for the 3/4 length.
  • Also combined the t-shirt and crop top pattern pieces so you just cut one and fold up to get the crop length.
  • Text only pages at the end of the file so you can print out if you like. (I prefer to read on the screen)
  • Updated the pattern number on the printables so it is 1801 instead of 1501. All my AGD patterns start with 18 now.

When I first drew up this pattern I was going to include cardigan pieces but it just got to unwieldy. I am glad I waited because it is so easy to make a cardigan from the t-shirt or skivvy pieces there is no need for separate pieces.
The Classic Cardy is now Fashion File 12 based on 1801 Knitfit Lucy - Classic Skivvy for Light Weight Knits.

When you see my unassuming skivvy pattern promo page it is hard to imagine the amazing designs you can create from it. That is why I write the Fashion Files. I love to play with the patterns.


Fashion File 12 shows you how to make a cardigan using the pieces from your purchased pattern 1801. For $2.50 USD on Etsy you get the classic pattern pieces.

With just this one pattern purchase you can make t-shirts, skivvies and crop tops as well as dresses and now this cute cardy.



If you add 1" to the bodice you can make it a longline design and put on patch pockets. Use the crop length and make it a short waist length. Use the round neck or cut the v-neck. Put on bands or use hems. There are so many things you can do just with the cardigan let alone all the other shirt variations.

My aim is to create a range of patterns that will enable crafters to create a wide range of designs. I have nearly made all the classic designs that I had in mind for the Snugfit Collection. I am quite excited to think that I can start to spend more time making outfits from all the interchangable pattern pieces in the Snugfit Collection. I want to make lots more Fashion Files.

Happy Sewing,
