The Envelope Shrug 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

1 review   |  

The Envelope Shrug, by Thimbles and Acorns, is a simple top made from a single rectangular pattern piece that is cleverly folded and stitched together. Whether you make the lined or unlined version, it is a super quick and easy pattern to put together. It is made with two basic seamlines that form a yoke and center back seam with a split in the back. The draped collar can be worn loose as a carefree cardigan or secured in the front with a single decorative pin, button, or snap for a smart looking top.
