Baby Doll shirts Pattern
I loved the Weir kit I used. I know it would be satisfying to make one of these from scratch, but if you don't want to hunt down all the materials, and if you're looking to skip a few steps to save time, these kits are really great.
The shirt pattern has several things going for it: It's super easy and fast, which is great when you want to whip up a bunch to mix and match. Another nice thing, is that it's easy for children to learn to put on themselves - which Mommies are always grateful for. The elastic in the neck and the roominess of the blouse allows you to just slip it over the dolls head. Plus, the basic shape is easy to adapt to fit most any shape or size doll. I drafted mine for the 14" doll, but you can make it fit whatever you need.
A few tips:
1. Pull the elastic in the neck tight so that it isn't too big. Also, the waldorf dolls are pretty skinny, so the elastic in the pants should be smaller than you expect.
2. To save time, cut out your pants with the bottom of the leg along the selvedge so that you don't have to hem the pants.
3. Use knit, quilting cotton, or fleece. This pattern seems to work with most anything.
4. To add a little shape to the dress, tie a ribbon around the waist.

It would help if we knew a little more details about what you are looking for and what you like or don't like, how skilled you are, how detailed you want the doll to be, etc.
None of this is meant to offend. There are just so many choices and we don't know which pattern you have or what it looks like. A picture would help.
What type of doll shape are you looking for? Baby doll? Cabbage Patch? American Girl? Bitty Baby?
The 16" and 20" on your pattern might be Cabbage Patch or regular Baby doll sizes
