The 4-Way Wardrobe 18" Doll Clothes

28   |  

The 4-Way Wardrobe is a darling 1950’s style 3/4 circle skirt, blouse, reversible midriff top, and shorts pattern that you can make in a jiffy! Inspired from a 1952 magazine ad, the 4 piece set can be made in mix or match fabrics for the start of your authentic 1950’s wardrobe.

The Poodle Skirt is one of the most memorable symbols of 1950’s Americana. Artwork is included in the pattern to create your appliqué. Pick your pet and choose from the Classic Poodle, Pouncing Puppy, Lil’ Scotty, or a Kitty Cat. Place your pet at the hem of the skirt and complete the look with a curly leash.

This PDF pattern is designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl®. Cloth bodied dolls measurements can vary a good bit. This skirt has a fitted waistband with an 11¼” finished waist. If you doll has a larger waist you will need to adjust the pattern to fit.

Recommended Fabrics:  Cotton, wool, and felt were traditionally used in full skirts in the 1950’s. Today’s felt is probably a bit thick and too stiff for good doll proportions. Lightweight cottons, quilt cottons, woven blends, or flannel is a good option for this pattern.

-1⁄4 Yard 45” Fabric, One Sew-on Snap Size 3/0 (1⁄4”), 18” of Embroidery Floss or Narrow Rick-Rack Trim, 3” x 3” Fabric Scrap for Appliqué, 3” x 3” Paper backed Iron-on Adhesive (such as HeatnBond Lite)

Blouse:
-1⁄4 Yard 45” Fabric, Four 1⁄4” buttons, Hook and Loop Fastener (5½” x ½”) or two Sew-on Snaps size 3/0 (1⁄4”)

Great Pattern Great Results

I really thought this pattern was great!. I have made all four garments including 3 skirts and 3 shirts, and the midriff top and cuffed pants, as well as 3 pairs of shorts without cuffs. I didn't do the applique but plan to at some stage. The instructions were clear and easy to understand with good photographs. I think I will be using this pattern again. Everything made up fairly quickly as well.

1950s style

Straightforward instructions for a great result . The midriff top was a snug fit on my Journey Girl doll but I may have done the seams too wide. I made two outfits and they both look really good.
