I would like to share with you today the doll clothing hangers that are the perfect fit for 14-15 inch sized dolls. Thanks so much to Santa for bringing all those adorable American Girl Wellie Wishers and Hearts for Hearts doll clothes…now it’s time to get them organized! These little hangers will get you organized but will also look cute in displays such as dress shops. I will share with you the Etsy shop where you can purchase these hangers. I will also share with you a free printable to turn these shirt hangers into pant and skirt hangers. I will also let you in on a tip on how to measure your doll to size up just the right hanger.
These hangers are from Etsy shop, PA.Woods. You can find this shop here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/PaWoods?ref=l2-shopheader-name . These particular hangers are 3-1/2 inches wide. The shop offers many different sized hangers and does take custom orders. This particular set was a set of 10 for $8.95 plus shipping. I paid via paypal friend. When I completed the purchase I waited for an emailed bill. You also have an option of sending a money order. I found these hangers to be in very good quality. They are made from a strong durable wire, yet light weight. I like the fact they were light weight, that way they are not adding more weight to the dowel rod in the doll closet.
The direct link for the 3-1/2 inch hangers can be found here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/110561551/3-12-inch-doll-clothes-hanger-set-of-10?ref=shop_home_active_13
Tip for measuring for a doll hanger. Measure from shoulder to shoulder. I would pair a Wellie Wishers doll with a 3-1/2 to 4 inch sized hanger. For an American Girl doll I would pair a 6 or 6-1/2 inch sized hanger. (The white AG hangers are 6-1/2 inches wide.) You don’t want a hanger too wide that it leave dart marks in the shoulders and you don’t want them too small so there is slipping from the neck opening.
To create a pant / shirt with skirt hanger slipping print out the pdf onto 65lb stock paper…(or print out, cut, and trace onto paper thickness of your choice)…fold in half and slid down over hanger and staple.
I created the skirt/pant hanger printable first. Then my daughter requested a longer version so a shirt could easily fit with the skirt. The Wellie skirts are full and the shirts didn’t fit well on the shorter version. The wire is thin so a simple mini clothes pin might work as well for some pants.

You can see how nicely the doll clothes hang on these hangers and pant/skirt adaptions. Here is a display from the doll dress shop.
I did a similar printable several years ago for Doll Diaries for the 18 inch sized dolls using the hangers from American Girl. You can find that free pdf here: Pant Hanger Template
