I’ve had this pattern on my website for quite some time, but it has never been offered as a free printable PDF pattern before. So today I’m upgrading this pattern to a PDF.
When you print the pattern, you’ll see the image of the purple summer top displayed on the middle bodice pattern. That’s the one you should use: the pattern in the middle of the page.
Cut one from felt. No hemming is required because it’s felt.
All you need to make the tank top is a swatch of craft felt, about three Dritz snaps, and some 1/8 inch Offray ribbon to match the color of the felt.
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls:
- Queens of Africa Dolls
- Momoko dolls
- modern and Made-to-Move Barbie dolls
- vintage Barbie dolls
- vintage Francie dolls
- Liv dolls
- Disney Princess 11 inch dolls
