Retro Wrap Top 18" Doll Clothes

This is a easy, quick-sewing project for newer seamstresses, craft-fair sellers, and all nostalgia -loving doll aficionados. Both the Front and Back Bodices fit around the doll with ties, which means that the top will fit older, chubbier dolls as well as newer ones that prefer to eat salads.  It will also fit Journey Girls® dolls as well.  Two neckline variations are included in this PDF pattern, as well as two lengths for the longer ties. The directions have been written comprehensively with many explanatory details for those who are newer to sewing. An experienced seamstress will probably be able to construct the blouse just by reading the instructions highlighted in bold text. Happy sewing!
