Fantabulous! Overalls and Oversize Tee 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

3 reviews   |  

Take a nostalgic trip back to the 80s, when comfy but classy oversize clothing reigned. This pattern, by Thimbles and Acorns, features a baggy fitting pair of overalls that taper to fit at the ankle. The overalls are held up with straps that fasten on a small front bib with buttons or snaps and large deep front pockets are set in the front and side seams. Topstitching is used to enhance various seams and outlines. The overalls can be left loose or cinched at the waist paper bag style with the D-ring belt that is included as a bonus tutorial. The 80s styled Tee fastens in the back with snaps or hook and loop tape and completes the look of this trendy 80s ensemble with its boxy torso and oversize armholes.

FANTABULOUS! OVERALLS AND OVERSIZE TEE 18"

This is a really fun and easy to make pattern. You can make with or without belt loops and belt, for a completely different look. It goes together very nicely and the instructions are very well done. Along with the overalls is the oversize tee, which is super easy and quick to sew. All of your 18 inch girls should have a set of these.

Fantabulous Overalls

I loved this overalls pattern. I had forgotten how sweet the dolls look in them. Easy and excellent pattern instructions. Comes with a versatile oversized blouse for that 80's look. My one sewing suggestion is to choose a lightweight chambray type fabric, or printed denim type fabric so you can make those little teeny belt loops. I think the belt loops really make the outfit pop.
