The Bestie dolls are 18" dolls that were designed to fit in most of those fabulous clothes and shoes for todays popular 18" dolls including, American Girl; Madame Alexander Favorite Friends; Dolly and Me. etc. Enjoy all of the wonderful clothes, sewing and knitting patterns out there without the vinyl dolls.
This listing is for a PDF SEWING PATTERN includes actual size template pieces and direction for the doll only. The skill level is Intermediate but pattern support is just an email away. Dolls are approx 18" tall depending on how densely they are stuffed.
Why aren't the wig direction included? The wigs shown ?on these dolls are hand-knit, and since not all who sew ? also knit, the wig patterns are available separately. The internet is rich with wonderful tutorials for several methods of wig making. There are so many ways to make ?a doll wig, some are simple and some more intricate. Find the one that works best for you.
This doll is safe for all ages, however, the outfit she is wearing may have small parts such as buttons,? buckles etc. so be vigilant when small children ?are playing with her.
These dolls are cloth dolls and do not stand on their own, though they can be "propped up" and do fit in stands made for this size doll.
W I G P A T T E R N shown is currently the only one resized for this doll. The Mop and Pigtails will soon also be available. Convo me if you do not see the wig pattern you'd like and I will put a hustle on it for you.

I love dolls and still have my Madame Alexander Kitten doll, she is 3 months sized and over 50 years old! I loved putting real baby clothes on her (still do). My newborn sized Whimsy Kids and Whimsy Baby dolls are my own original pattern, designed through much trial and error to fulfill my desire to offer quality handmade dolls that can wear newborn or preemie sized clothes, wardrobe options are limitless and a bargain! No vinyl, no plastic, no batteries, they run on love and hugs!
Baby's First dolls and WhimsyBuddy dolls are also my own pattern, designed to be super soft, baby/toddler safe, light weight, grab-able, washable and appealing to moms and little ones alike.
HugKnits evolved from my daughter's devotion to her Fisher Price Blanket Bunny (remnants of which went to college with her) and her desire to have one for her baby. Once Cheeky Bunny was done I just couldn't stop still going! Also working on other stuffed toy patterns using the same look of the popular HugKnits lovies.
