Last time we made harnesses for our centaurs. Today we’re making them some clothes! If you haven’t already seen my video on how to make a centaur out of a doll and a doll horse, you can see it here.

In the video, I talk briefly about how to make a shirt for your centaur using an existing shirt pattern. I used (and love!) the Janie Carroll Designs Ezy T Great Lengths pattern. If you don’t already own this pattern, you can get it here. It’s an easy pattern, even for beginners. There are no sleeves to set in and several length variations.

If you are subscribed to my newsletter, you should have already received a copy of the pattern. If you’re not already signed up, register here and you’ll be sent the pattern, along with the centaur harness pattern and the Ancient Roman pattern for 18 inch dolls.

The vest pattern is suitable for the bigger-bodied 18-inch dolls such as American Girl® and Our Generation®. If you used a slimmer doll such as Journey Girls®, you will have to alter the pattern.
