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.
