Adam Kreutinger's Small Fry Puppet Clothing Patterns

I have been making Small Fry puppets from Adam Kreutinger's pattern and modifying doll clothing patterns to fit the measurements of the Small Fry. The Small Fry doesn't have a "neck" that is smaller than its shoulders, and as such, 18-inch doll clothing patterns require modifying to fit the Small Fry's proportions.

This post is about the formal suit jackets and dress shirts I made for the Small Fry. The suit jacket pattern has three different collar styles and two different fit styles in it. One is more of a Pea Coat fit, bigger in the overall sizing and with a wider lapel. The other fit is more true to the Small Fry measurements and I have included a 1950's style Peak lapel and a smaller Mod notched lapel style.

The dress shirt has two different collar styles - a traditional straight collar and one with a bit longer collar points as seen in the polka-dotted dress shirt photo. The sleeves are intentionally about a half-inch long for the Small Fry arms, adjust your pattern as you desire for sleeve length.

The patterns all include a 1/4 inch seam allowance. When a 1/8 inch sewing edge is called for, it is indicated in the pattern instructions.

If you download and use these patterns and instructions, I'd love to see what you've made with them!

I will be editing and uploading the dress pants and boxer shorts I made for the Small Fry puppet soon.
