Sewing for Animators’ Dolls – Meet Moana

Meet the newest Animators’ doll- Moana. I’ve had a lot of questions about the fit of Oh Sew Kat! clothing because Moana has a little larger body than the usual Animators’. Her feet are definitely bigger!! But those eyes- she is just plain adorable. I’m also a big fan of her movie and her story, so maybe that helps. 🙂 As soon as she arrived, she needed some new clothes!

Make your own Doll Clothes for the new 16 Inch Moana Animators’ Doll

Oh Sew Kat! offers 26 patterns and bundles for the 16 inch Animators’ dolls made by Disney®. The Animators’ series is not consistent across the years and dolls, some are a bit bigger or smaller than others. (For example, Anna is a full inch shorter than Elsa!) But I found that OSK patterns have enough ease and give to still fit her as well. Read on for some super Moana in her Oh Sew Kat! cuteness!!! Click HERE to go to the Animators’ Section of the Oh Sew Kat! Etsy Shop to see the full line of patterns available.

I pulled out some of my Oh Sew Kat! pattern samples that I have made over the years, and Moana gave me a full fashion show. These are all of the same outfits that are shown in the photos in my patterns, on the other dolls like Anna, Elsa, Ariel, Belle, and Rapunzel. I am happy to report that I did not have any trouble with any of the patterns I tried. Shoes, however, were a little different story. If Moana is wearing shoes, they are regular 18 inch doll size shoes. She did not come with shoes and her feet are very wide. Here are the patterns I tried:
