More About Each Pattern:
The California Cami For 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl®: The Liberty Jane CA Cami PDF Pattern features a cute top from the Malibu Libby Collection. This versatile pattern includes many variations! Two strap styles give you the choice of either enclosing the entire armscye with binding or simply attaching a shorter strap from the front to back bodice. We've also included a dress length option so you can make a kneelength or maxi style dress an wow your friends! Because the 18 inch soft boddied dolls can vary in their amount of stuffing, we've designed this top to be sewn using a knit fabric (which allows for a bit of stretch in the fit) for the bodice and a lightweight woven or knit fabric with soft drape for the ruffle portion. You can make the entire dress out of a woven fabric, but we'd suggest checking the fit of the bodice first if you think you might have a doll with a bust measurement larger larger than 10-3/4". Finding the perfect fabric can be a lot of work! Be sure to check out our growing collection of Pixie Packs, hand selected by Cinnamon, which include a variety of fabrics and notions - perfect for sewing doll sized items!
