Made with the Olympic colors and flags in mind, this stylishly fitted dress and pants suit have striking colored ‘flags’ of their own. Four trendy triangular flags run down the right side of the dress, three down the top and one flag sits on either side of the Capri pants. Subtle piping enhances the contrast fabric of the dress and top, as well as the cuffs of the capris. The capris have elastic in the waist for easy dressing. Both the dress and top are fully lined and close with snap fasteners. A decorative buckle finishes the left shoulder strap. This easy and very quick to make PDF pattern, is designed to fit 18” soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®.
