This pattern has been available on this website for a while, but only as a JPG image. Now that I’ve converted it to PDF, I wanted to re-post the project for everyone to enjoy. Here’s another image of the outfit we’re making today:
For this project, you’ll need some felt for the top, cotton for the skirt, and lace for your shoulder straps and your trim. You’ll also want to have a little elastic for the waist and size 1/0 teeny-tiny Dritz snaps for the back of your felt shirt.
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls:
- Queens of Africa Dolls
- Momoko dolls
- modern and Made-to-Move Barbie dolls
- vintage Francie dolls
- Liv dolls
- Disney Princess 11 inch dolls
