A popover style shirtdress for your Kidz N Cats® doll? Yes! This on-trend dress is a fun new addition to our Malibu Libby collection. Stroll along the beach and have lunch at the Coronado Hotel in this cute pullover style shirtdress, which makes the perfect addition to any 18 inch doll's summer wardrobe! The mandarin collar, roll-up sleeves and shirt tail hem add all the right fashion touches! Learn new techniques with confidence. This PDF sewing pattern teaches how to sew a henley style placket, the mandarin collar, and a faced hemline. This doll clothes pattern also includes a shirt length version and a short gathered puff sleeve to give you more great options. The top has an added split hemline at the side seams - it’s all in the details! The sleeve design is interchangeable and can be used for either the top or the dress. The back of the dress is open halfway, while the shirt back is open the entire center back. Both designs can be sewn with a Velcro or snap closure for easy on and off. Instructions are included to sew the front placket with a tiny pointed end or a more simple squared off finish.
Special Note - This pattern is designed to fit a Kidz N Cats Doll specifically and will not fit the standard 18 inch doll such as American Girl Doll. A KNC doll is 18 inches tall but has a much slimmer hard plastic body. You can see more info on our Doll Measurements page.
This adorable shirtdress pattern is also available at Pixie Faire for 18" dolls such as American Girl®.
Recommended fabrics include: Very lightweight denim (shirt or dress fabric), chambray, tissue weight linen, tencel, challis, and any lightweight cotton.
