This pattern, by FROG Princess Fashions, offers not only the perfect blouse for all seasons, but it is designed for all purposes, as well. Offering five sleeve options and three collars, this one pattern provides at least fifteen different looks—a unique blouse for every month of the year and then some! Adding lace, machine embroidery, or other trims gives you even more options for personalizing this sweet blouse and dressing it up or down.
Made in lightweight fabrics, Lori’s Lacy Blouse Wardrobe offers the perfect blouse for school days, but also a dressy option made up in a fancy fabric for parties or evening wear.
Lori’s Lacy Blouse could also be stitched up in cotton or poplin fabric with a contrasting collar, cuffs, band, and even contrasting sleeves. When you add the custom machine embroidered collars and cuffs from Frog Princess Fashions (available separately), your 18” doll’s lovely blouse will stand out with an extra bit of dazzle.
Top your entire outfit with a hat, bag, and shoes, and your doll is ready for everything from school to soiree´ and any occasion in between! Make yours today!
Note: This design is fitted with darts to allow a smooth line under waistbands and jumpers. The design is modeled on the newer, slimmer American Girl™ dolls with waists smaller than 11.” As a general rule, compare your doll’s measurements to the pattern before cutting your fabric, especially if you have an older doll.
Be sure to check out the coordinating Frog Princess Fashions Machine Embroidery designs!
Suggested fabrics: batiste, lawn, poplin, lightweight quilting cottons in mini prints, stripes, etc., eyelet, seersucker, dotted swiss, and similar lightweight fabrics. If using very sheer fabric, consider cutting 2 front pieces with one serving as a lining for the blouse front.

I love this pattern. The possible styles are only limited by your imagination. The fit it perfect. They remind me of the blouses I bought my daughter in the 70’s. Anyone who buys this pattern will not regret it. A lovely pattern to use over and over. I made 2 styles so far with several more in mind. This will be a go to pattern in your library.
