Dance Time Pattern For A Girl For All Time Dolls


“Dance Time”, by Karen Lorraine Design, consists of a leotard with boyleg pants, and three layered overskirts. The leotard is made from a 4-way knit/stretch fabric. Stretch binding (or fold-over-elastic) appears on the neckline and armholes, while a pretty ribbon sparkles from the overskirt edges. The three-layered overskirts gather at the waistline, and sandwich into the leotard; hence, this pattern does not require any elastic. The overskirt fabric (like tulle) can be either a 2-way or 4-way stretch knit. A back closure (like hook and loop tape) is required for the upper leotard back.

Also included in this pattern is a bonus item of leg warmers. These can be quickly sewn from stretch knit fabrics.

This package allows the seamstress to indulge in a world of solo-colour, or mix-it-up with sequins and glitter. Alternatively, the variations included in this pattern allow for several other outfits, including tank tops, knickers, unitards, and fairy and princess decorated outfits.

This PDF sewing pattern will fit various 16-inch dolls like A Girl For All Time®. It will also fit other dolls like the 17-inch Sylvia Natterer™ Starlette doll.

This pattern is also available designed to fit 14-14.5" dolls such as Hearts for Hearts Girls® and WellieWishers™, as well as 18" dolls such as American Girl®.

Recommended Fabrics: 4-way stretch like lycra or dance fabric for the main bodice and pants. 4-way stretch fabric like tulle, lycra, or dance fabric for the overskirts.

Supplies Needed:
• 32" (wide) x 15" (deep), 4-way stretch fabric like lycra or dance fabric. This measurement includes enough to make the self-binding.
• 30" (wide) x 14" (deep) 2-way or 4-way stretch fabric like tulle.
• 20" x 1" fabric for stretch binding (or two lots of 10" x 1"). This can be purchased from the shop (as stretch bias binding), or you can make your own (with these measurements). The pattern shows self-made binding (and this amount is included in the above stretch fabric amount of lycra, etc.). See instructions for further information on how to cut the binding strip if you are making your own binding.
• Fold over elastic to use instead of stretch binding. (Optional). 20" long by 1" deep.
• Sock fabric or knit fabrics for leg warmers, for example, use children’s socks and cut them down to create your new sock fabric 2¾" (wide) x 4½" (deep).
• Ribbon for the base of the tulle skirts (if desired). I have used 1/8" wide ribbon. Length needed is about 90".
• Matching or contrasting polyester thread.
• Hook and loop tape or similar for upper back closure.
• Appropriate sewing machine needle. (Check your sewing machine manual for this).
