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.

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.
