Betsy McCall 16" Rag doll
& her Wardrob

This was my Mom's pattern from 1956 when she made two of these darling Betsy McCall dolls with complete wardrobes for my younger sisters. I was a little jealous because I was "to old for dolls". But, "we" know that no one is every to old for dolls...don't we?

This pattern will make the following:

  • 16" Betsy McCall rag doll with, yarn hair and embroidered face
  • Chemise with lace edging
  • Petticoat, (half slip) with ruffle
  • Dress & Jacket, dress with cummerbund, contrasting top & collar on jacket
  • Dress, drop waist in stripe fabric (my Mom made this dress out of plaid taffeta)
  • Dress & Jumper with button closure in front
  • Dress, sleeveless with 3-button trim on bodice

Here are the finished measurements of this darling doll:

  • Height 16"
  • Waist  5-1/4"
  • Chest   6-1/2"
  • Neck   3-3/8"
