Frilled To Bits 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

5 reviews   |  

Frilled To Bits, by Little Miss Muffett - Dancing, Carnivals, Fun and Fiesta! This gorgeous dress, or top and pants suit are perfect for partying. The A-Line sleeveless dress or top has piping along the ruffled insert, neckline and armholes. A fabric bow finishes the apex of the ruffled insert. The dress or top are fully lined and close with hook and loop tape in back. The pants echo the ruffled insert of the top, sporting piping and a ruffle with bow on the right leg. The pretty dress or pants outfit is quick to make; use bright florals, lace, contrasting piping, bold colors, whatever you fancy. This relatively easy PDF pattern is designed to fit 18” soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®.
