Elana 18 inch Doll Clothes Crochet and Sewing Pattern

2 reviews   |  

Pretty as a spring day and perfect for a warm summer night. This easy crochet and sewing project is a pure delight!

Crochet tops will forever be a signature summer trend. This crochet top has a touch of nostalgia for the 70s but has a modern romantic flair. The simple half double crochet and shell stitch top can be made on its own or worn over a cami with the buttoned opening in the front or the back. This design includes a sewing pattern for a circle style skirt that pairs perfectly with the crochet top. They can be made as separates or follow the instructions to combine the top with the skirt to create a lovely dress.

The directions are included for a lining for the front of the top or omit the lining and use the top as a sleeveless jacket. The pattern for the separate skirt or skirt of the dress is a full circle skirt with hook and loop or closure of choice at the back in two lengths is included. The sewing portion of the pattern is fat quarter friendly.

The finishing touch is a crocheted belt, included with the pattern.  Your doll is going to want this outfit made several ways.

This PDF crochet pattern by Dan-El Designs is designed to fit 18-inch soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®.
