These easy PDF patterns, comprising an adorable skirt and gorgeous blouse are a must for any 18-inch Miss’ wardrobe. The skirt has a top-stitched Basque with an elasticized waist. The gathered wrap section is finished with a ruffled strip of frayed fabric at hem edge. An optional button, ribbon rose or ribbon bow at the hip, completes the skirt. The blouses are lined and fitted and come to just below the waistline. The three necklines offered are soft and wide, and deep enough to allow a necklace to sit comfortably. The shallow sweetheart neckline has an optional bow; the round neckline with gathered lace has a tiny, dangly ribbon bow and the scoop neckline has a ruffled, buttoned placket. The puff sleeves are fitted and cuffed with fabric cut on the bias for extra ease. Create many different outfits by mixing and matching blouse and skirt ruffles, Basques and blouses; the options are endless. These patterns are designed to fit 18” soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®.
