Stroll the promenade, visit a cafe, and window shop to your hearts content in this stylish doll clothes pattern design by Liberty Jane! The Euro Libby San Marco Top and Dress is a nod to the traditional sailor collar with a modern twist. The design features a one-piece shoulder yoke with a raglan seam construction, creating the visual look similar to a sailor collar, but here, it is all part of the design. The ruffle accent adds a feminine detail complimented by a lace embellishment that highlights the design lines. Both the top and the dress feature a clean and simple neck binding.
This pattern includes four variations making it suitable for a variety of fabric types. The top and the dress can each be made with two options for the back opening.

So many options with this one. Top or Dress? Knit or woven fabric? I choose to make mine as a dress and used a lightweight knit. The cute little ruffle around the collar does not show up well in the picture but in person it is too cute. Just enough of a ruffle at the bottom of the dress to add a little bounce. The key hole opening at the back works well with light weight knits
I enjoyed testing this pattern so much that I made it twice just to try out some of the different options. I had a thin knit fabric that was perfect for the dress, and I really liked the little slit with hook and eye closure on the back instead of the usual Velcro. I also made the top in a woven cotton, which worked out just as well, and was perfect with a little skirt. With options for a dress and top, as well as working with many different types of fabric, this is a great pattern to add to your collection!
