How to Adjust 16” cpk patterns to fit 20” TRUs

Adjusting doll patterns are pretty easy.  TRU (Toys ‘R Us) Cabbage Patch Kids dolls are mainly just longer than the vintage 16” Cabbage Patch Kids dolls.  I’m not going to go through each and every pattern that is out there, but just to give you an idea, I’ll go over a pair of pants, blouse, and a pleated skirt pattern*.

My Anna Doll Soft Sculpture Pattern

editIMG_3388It’s finally here!  This is the pattern everyone has been waiting for.  I’ve searched high and low for a pattern to make dolls close to Cabbage Patch Kids.  I’ve found similar, but not exact, so I drafted my own.  I drafted My Anna Doll from an original 16-inch mass-market Cabbage Patch Kid.  It has taken me a long time to finish this.  I first started drafting it when I made an 8” doll.  I then got so busy with other things, that it lay dormant for a long time.  Well, now I’ve brought it back to life.  With many hours of drafting, sewing, and writing to make it the best it can be, I’ve finally finished it.
