Alana is a versatile pattern that’s perfect for boy or girl dolls. It comprises of a Hawaiian-style shirt, shorts with contrast trim, and a reversible bucket hat.
The loose-fitting casual shirt is traditionally styled. It has a left breast pocket, notched collar, lined yoke, side slits, short sleeves and is fastened with hook and loop tape, buttons or snaps.
The shorts have a contrast hem band and an elasticized waist for an easy fit.
The whole ensemble is a fun summer outfit that’s ideal beach wear, perfect for a doll’s vacation, for wearing on board a ship, or just for playing in the park or the yard.

Love the pattern and the instructions were great!! Thanks!
Goes together quickly & easily and with little alteration works for boy or girl. Love the hat too as hats are hard to find for these dolls. Wonderful pattern
As a tester on this pattern for Genniewren Designs, I have to say it is one of my faves! Great techniques. And that hat! OMG! adorable :D
This pattern is perfect for boys or girls! The fit of the shirt is roomy enough to put a tank or t-shirt under it. The shorts with the contrasting "cuff" and reversible hat are all so easy to make following the terrific directions included. And if you like siblings, there is a matching pattern to fit the bitty baby.
