Bella Blouse 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

5 reviews   |  

What better top to wear on a sunny day than the Bella Blouse? The clean simple lines are perfect for spring, summer, and fall. The Bella blouse is so versatile, you can wear it with skirts or with leggings, with pants or with shorts, or even under a jumper on cooler days.
The Bella blouse, by Genniewren Designs, features a real collar and front fastening, with a choice of short sleeve styles. The fit of the blouse is adjusted in the back with two optional tucks.

The short straight sleeves make the blouse perfect for school wear or casual wear. The puffed sleeves add a touch of cuteness and make an everyday blouse a little more special. Instructions are included for snaps or hook and loop fastener closures, or you can add real buttons and buttonholes if you prefer.

The bonus pattern is a full two-tier skirt which is perfect to wear with the blouse, or you could wear leggings underneath the skirt for an up-to-the-minute fashion look.
The Bella Blouse will fast become one of your doll’s wardrobe staples.

Right now I'm in the process of sewing this blouse and have been pleased that the instructions are easy to follow and that the blouse is turning out so cute!

Bella Blouse 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

It is hard to find patterns for blouses but when I seen this one I had to add it to my collection. You can use your creativity when starting this project. At present, I am completed other sewing projects. I will forward on pictures when I complete this pattern. Great pattern.

Very stylish

A great blouse. A fair amount of sewing and a bit fiddly at times, but well worth the finished item. A well put together pattern, and succinct instructions

I've been looking for something like this

I really enjoyed this pattern. I like making clothes that look like people clothes instead of just doll clothes. I think my doll looks quite stylish in her gingham blouse.

Quick, Easy & Stylish

These pieces not only work well together, but will also pair nicely with other items in your doll's wardrobe - the blouse looks adorable with overalls, and the skirt is a wardrobe basic that goes with everything from T-shirts to crop tops and cowboy boots. The darts & tucks are nice details, but can be omitted for looser fit & different look. Great instructions & photos make for a quick & easy sew. You can't go wrong with this pattern.
