The Rosie Romper pattern, by Genniewren Designs, is a cute romper design for your 18 inch doll. There are two bodice styles and three pants options included in this PDF sewing pattern, which can be mixed and matched. The bodice is lined and the romper fastens at the center back bodice with buttons, snaps or hook and loop tape closures. Instructions are given for all closure options. The back has sashes to tie in a big bow to add interest.
View A has a high necked bodice and full length plain pants. View B has a sweetheart neckline and full length pants with ruffles. View C has “shortie” pants with an elasticated edge to the leg.
Views A & B offer the perfect style outfit for a birthday party or for more formal occasions.

Whatever option you choose for your Rosie Romper your doll is sure to love this versatile, comfortable and easy to wear garment.
