Purse Pocket Set 15" Doll Clothes


Little girls love to carry purses just like their mommies and big sisters.  However, it is easy for little ones to get distracted while playing and lose their purses.  This little outfit provides a fun way to have the look of a purse that will not get lost.  There are several options for varying the look of this set by using different combinations of fabric and choosing from the different sleeve and ruffle options. Get inspiration from several photos included in the guidebook.  Have fun and be creative!

Recommended Fabrics:  Knits are suitable for all pattern pieces.  Woven fabric such as quilters' cotton may be used for  ruffles  and top back and front pieces
