These easy PDF patterns, by Little Miss Muffett, include a beautifully feminine Easter outfit consisting of Pantaloon-Style pants with appliquéd bunnies on the sides of the legs; a high-waisted, bibbed top with ruffled shoulder straps and which closes with hook and loop tape by tucking the straps behind the waistband; and a fabulously fitting lace hat which is stiffened and then edged with binding trim and decorated as desired. To finish the ensemble, an adorable, perfectly Dolly-sized, mini crochet Easter Basket with narrow silk ribbon threaded through the handle and bows tied at the base, is an absolute must for keeping all your dolls chocolate eggs. These PDF patterns are designed to fit 18” soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®.
