Prima Dancewear 18" Doll Clothes


"There is something inspiring about dancewear, as if merely slipping into a tutu will allow one to do great things."  The Prima PDF Sewing Pattern will help you create Ballet, Skating, & Gymnastic wear for American Girl Isabelle & other 18" Dolls.  This pattern will help you make a 5-Piece Set: Leotard, Wrap Top, Wrap Skirt, Tutu, and Hair Accessories (headband, ponytail holder).

These designs are styled like real girls’ dance-wear!  They are well-fitting, pretty dance & performance pieces for AG dolls.  Prima has so much mix and match potential!  Fun and lively, this design allows for many personal touches.  It uses small amounts of fabric or remnants and has lots of variation built in!

This pattern is fun & spirited! Try different methods of applying elastics and trims to really get the most out of the set. The leotard will also function perfectly as a swimsuit!  The pattern includes 32 pages of instruction, photos, & information, including hints for beginning sewists. Instructions can be printed in booklet style to reduce printing, or read along on your laptop or tablet. Print only the sections you need!
