Boardwalk Boutique Halter Top & Capris 14.5" Doll Clothes Pattern

6   |  

As spring turns to summer, this elastic back halter top and pull on capri pants are the perfect outfit for a warm, summer evening stroll along the beach or down the boardwalk. Your doll will be ready for the playgound, a picnic or a beach party! Stitch it up with contrasting ruffles or other fun trims. The ruffles add a playful boutique style to a simple and easy to sew summer look, to keep your doll feeling cool, cute, and casual all at the same time! Mix and match your doll's outfit with fun fabrics like holiday prints and tropical florals - and without formal closures, it is easy for little hands to sew and dress their dolls. The top ties at the neck with fabric ties or the simpler ribbon option.

Transition the Boardwalk Boutique to a back to school look by adding a tee shirt or turtleneck or using heavier fabrics. You can lengthen the top to make a simple sundress or jumper!

Boardwalk Boutique is an easy to sew pattern to make a halter top and matching pull on pants. With ribbon or fabric ties, it's easy on and off for little hands. This pattern is also a perfect starter pattern for girls that want to learn to sew for their dolls, or for more experienced seamstresses to make a basic doll wardrobe with lots of options. This pattern will quickly become a forever favorite!

This classic, simple top and pant set is very easily made from a quarter yard of fabric (quilters' fat quarters work great!) in a woven cotton or other lightweight fabric. Mix and match your fabrics and trims for unlimited design options. The simple front presents a perfect canvas to showcase a favorite novelty fabric or for appliqué, machine embroidery, heat transfer vinyl, iron ons, buttons, trims, ric rac, and fabric painting.

On the Boardwalk

Cute pattern with such nice results. Turning the front straps is the only hard part about it. Nice showcase for a larger print too.

Love the patterns for American girl and wellie wishers. Simple to follow instructions


Super cute set, easy to make

I love the boutique look of this set without it going over the top boutique if that makes sense? It was just as easy to make as its 18" counterpart. You can make the ties or use ribbon if you like. I actually opted for the ties when I tested this pattern but I took Oh Sew Kat's advice and used a tube turner. Turning those little ties was a piece of cake! I like how it looks cute no matter how much or little you add to it or trim/don't trim it. It gives me practice in combining fabric prints, something I don't think I'm very good or naturally talented at.

Oh Sew Cute Boardwalk

Love this outfit and so many possibilities with this pattern and the fit is perfect. I have made a few of these already and plan to make many more. Instructions are very easily followed, suitable for beginners yet fun for experienced sewers. Love this designer


Great Wellies pattern

The Boardwalk Boutique pattern by OhSewKat is just perfect for our new WellieWishers. It lends itself perfectly to any size of print - even very large ones - or solids or a combination. I used cotton scraps which made a nice crisp summer outfit. The whole outfit is a quick sew and turns out terrific every time. I like that the pattern is also sized for AG and Animators so that my girls can be dressed like sisters. I very highly recommend this terrific pattern.
