Lilly’s Lacy Top, Shorts, & Capris 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

1 review   |  

This super easy pattern, by Just 4 Us Dolls, is a great way for anyone new to sewing to learn the fun of making doll clothes and it’s a really great pattern for using up small amounts of leftover fabric! No elastic required! Just a small amount of fabric, lace, bias tape, and hook & loop tape and you will have really cute new looks for summer fun!

This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.

Suggested fabrics are lightweight 100% cotton wovens.  Narrow double-fold bias tape is used to finish the neckline and armhole openings.  Instructions for a hook & loop closure are included but the design provides adequate margins for alternative closures such as zippers or snaps.  Optional trims include mini-piping and 3/4” to 1” lace.

  • Fabric:
    • Lacy Top Fabric: 10” by 10”
    • Shorts Length Print Fabric: 12” by 13”
    • Capris Length Print Fabric: 20” by 12”

Easy and Adorable

I created this outfit as a Pattern Tester, and I must say, the shorts have one of the best fits of any pattern that I have ever tried. This is a quick and easy pattern with adorable results. Grandmothers, take note! If this is in your stash, you can whip this up in a flash if that special granddaughter comes to visit with her AG doll! If she is old enough, this can fall into the "teach her to sew" collection.
