“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.
