This delightful little ensemble was made using a variety of woven fabrics – Cotton, Batik, Satin, Velvet, Velvet Brocade, Faux Patent Leather, etc – let your imagination run wild – the sky’s the limit. This relatively easy PDF pattern consists of a short and sassy fully-lined skirt which has 8 pleated ‘petals’, edged in gathered tulle and overlapped to form the skirt body. The fully-lined top, sports a gathered lace-edged dog-collar and unique side panels made of vinyl, criss-crossed with narrow satin ribbon, and lastly, a pair of micro-shorts, which look super when worn with the top. Fingerless gloves and Footless thigh-high tights are the cutest finishing touches to this adorable, must-have outfit. This pattern is designed to fit 18” soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl ®.
