Amigurumi Doll Clothes – Sleepy Time Molly

My Dolly Molly wearing amigurumi doll clothes made with this free crochet pattern.

Earlier this year, I released a crochet along pattern to make an amigurumi doll with removeable clothes named My Dolly Molly. Molly was a big hit and there was a lot of requests for new outfits. Today’s free pattern is to make amigurumi doll clothes for Molly. Sleepy Time Molly has a little nightgown, topped off with a bow and a pair of slippers.

Your little one can dress Molly up for bed when they are getting themselves ready for bed. My daughter is actually the one that inspired this outfit. She absolutely loves to dress up her toys in her pajamas when she gets ready for bed. The only toy she wasn’t attempting to dress for bed was her My Dolly Molly. When I asked her why, she said it was because she didn’t have pajamas for Molly. Well, I couldn’t just let Molly go without so I made Molly her own bedtime wardrobe.

The My Dolly Molly pattern includes an removeable dress pattern. You can find the free version of the My Dolly Molly pattern here on my site, broken into three parts for the crochet along: Part One, Part Two and Part Three. Each part of the pattern includes step-by-step video tutorials as well. The full pattern is also available as an ad-free PDF version HERE in my Etsy and Ravelry shops. Molly also has a dress-up outfit called Molly the Mermaid here for free on the blog.

The original My Dolly Molly doll didn’t have any shoes so you can make the slippers from the Sleepy Time Molly pattern in a variety of colours to match Molly’s other outfits.

NOTES:

  • This outfit is an extension of my My Dolly Molly pattern and is designed to fit a My Dolly Molly doll. The free version of the My Dolly Molly Pattern can be found HERE.
  • This pattern is worked in joined rounds (unless stated otherwise).  A stitch marker is recommended to keep track of the beginning of the rounds.
  • For a cleaner SCDEC, do your SCDEC under the front loops only of each stitch rather than under both loops.  This is often referred to as an invisible decrease. (Find my tutorial on how to do the invisible decrease HERE)
  • Using the same hook and yarn that you used to make your doll can help with making sure that your clothes fit your Molly doll.


Special Techniques:

  • Invisible Join: FO leaving a long tail. Thread the tail onto a tapestry needle.  Place the tapestry needle through the top of the 2nd ST from front to back and pull through.  Place tip of needle into top of the last ST of the round, under the back loop of the stitch, and pull through to the back of the work.  Weave in the end.
