Gulf Shore Top 18" Doll Clothes Knitting Pattern

6 reviews   |  

The Gulf Shore Top is a lacy yoked sweater that recalls fun, sunny days by the shoreline collecting sea glass, playing on the sand bars, and picnicking by the strait. Designed to fit 18-inch soft bodied dolls such as American Girl® and Maplelea® dolls this top is a seamless knit, worked from the neckline down and features integrated sleeves and button bands. A gentle A-line shaping gives this knit a feminine appearance while creating sufficient ease for a flattering fit on a variety of dolls. For convenient dressing, this top opens fully at the back and fastens with a four-button closure. This sweater's versatile tunic length creates a variety of fun wardrobe options when paired with your doll's favorite skirts, shorts, or leggings.

One top four ways! This design is customizable. Options are presented for both short and long sleeve lengths as well as two lower border styles: lacy ripples or straight garter stitch.

Rich detail that’s easier than it looks

This is a beautiful top that knits up fairly quickly and is wonderfully detailed. I used Paton’s grace yarn and loved the sheen it gave.

Gulf Shore Top

This pattern was easy to follow and so versatile. There are enough options to make 4 different tops. The full back opening makes it easy to put it on your dolls. Knit with DK weight yarn with enough shaping to give an excellent fit. I can't wait to see what this designer will present next.

Gulf Shore Top

The directions in this pattern are easy to follow and the results are spectacular and so versatile. The tunic can be knit with knit with short or long sleeves and the option of using the lacy ripple hem or the straight garter stitch hem make each tunic very unique.
