Have fun with different fabrics. Easy pieces and easy construction make an outfit that is as fun and quick to sew as it is for your doll to wear. The easy “one piece pull on” style and open halter back is very easy for little hands to dress their dolls. HalterAlls are like overalls, but even easier!
HalterAlls for Dolls is an easy to sew pattern to make a halter backed romper. Tie the straps/ribbons at the neck for a classic halter top or cross them in the back like overalls. 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 romper is very easily made from a quarter yard of fabric (quilters' fat quarters work great!) in a woven cotton or other lightweight fabric. Use your favorite fabrics and trims for unlimited design options. The simple front presents a perfect canvas to showcase a special pocket, a favorite novelty fabric or for appliqué, machine embroidery, heat transfer vinyl, iron ons, buttons, trims, ric rac, and fabric painting.
This PDF sewing pattern was specifically designed and tested on 18 inch dolls such as American Girl®. My dolls have a waist measurement average of 10 1/2 inches. Please measure and test the fit on your own doll as there are many on the market and it may not fit the same on all of them.

I have worked on this pattern today. It is easy to put together and really looks cute!
I really enjoyed using this pattern It lends itself to a variety of fabrics and trims. I used rickrack trim and a fabric flower trim. One of the fabrics was a pink cotton with a Paris design, the other a navy cotton with an anchor design. Plan on making a few more using different fabric again.
I love this pattern - easy to follow directions & turned out lovely - will make more
I absolutely love this pattern. It is quick and easy. A favorite for the summer months. 100% happy with my purchase!!!!
