Francie has long been my all-time favorite doll made by Mattel, so I’m excited to start the new year by offering this pattern to fit her!
I have posted today’s free pattern before, but it currently only appears in the gallery pages for the Queens of Africa dolls and Petite Barbie. This is the first time I’ve added the pattern to my Francie Gallery.
Paired with the pants, this strappy tank top makes the ensemble look a lot like a pair of overalls, and as you know, this week we’ve already been talking about sewing overalls. So why not include this set, which has a similar look?
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls:
- Queens of Africa Dolls
- Petite Barbie dolls
- modern and Made-to-Move Barbie dolls
- Tall Barbie dolls
- vintage Francie dolls
- Liv dolls
