The Occasional Elf 18 Inch Doll Clothes Pattern

3 reviews   |  

“The Occasional Elf”, by Karen Lorraine Design, consists of a three-piece outfit (plus bonus Christmas hat!) designed for fashionable clothing wear, elves and other faeries, and especially for use during holiday occasions. Presenting a false front, the jacket closes simply at the back. Similarly, the pants are also easy-fitting and do not require any elastic at the waistline. They are also a looser fit in the lower leg than leggings or tights. The bonus Christmas hat pattern offers extra charm and possibilities with its cute pompom and flexible hat. Complete the outfit with the cute elf style shoes! This is an easy piece to quickly sew up and will be a fun addition to your doll's holiday wardrobe!
