For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you chose the Easter egg fabric as your favorite from among these three fabrics, so today I’m sewing Easter clothes for a friend’s granddaughter and I thought I’d share the results and the combination of patterns I’ve used. Here are the different fabrics you were allowed to choose from on Instagram:
Which dolls can wear this Easter halter top and shorts outfit?
- 18-inch (45-46 cm) Madame Alexander dolls
- 18-inch (45-46 cm) American Girl dolls
- 18-inch (45-46 cm) BFC Ink dolls (although I recommend these shorts instead)
- 14.5″ (36.8 cm) Wellie Wisher dolls (although I recommend these shorts instead)
- 15-inch Hearts for Hearts Girls dolls (again, I recommend these shorts instead)
- 18″ (45-46 cm) vintage Crissy dolls (either shorts pattern will work)
- 15 inch (380 mm) vintage Velvet and similar sized dolls (either shorts pattern will work)
- 13 inch Disney princess toddler dolls (once again, I recommend these shorts instead)
- 12-inch baby dolls like the 12.5″ (32 cm) Baby Alive dolls (use my bloomers pattern for baby dolls)
