Back in the 1960s the surfing scene was trending. A man named Dave Rochlen designed a style of swim trunks specifically for surfers, which he called, "Jams." But it wasn't long before they became popular on the sand as well as the surf, and soon a girls' version began to show up. They were affectionately called, "Jellies," and followed the basic Jams line but with ruffled legs and, of course, a top.
This Flossie Potter Easy PDF sewing pattern was resized from the popular larger size so it now fits 16" dolls such as A Girl for All Time®. The pattern will show you how to create your own Jellies with 14 pages of instructions and full-color illustrations, 3 pages of printable summary instructions (to save on printer ink!), and 3 pages of full-sized pattern pieces.
Special Note - This pattern is designed to fit A Girl For All Time® Dolls specifically and will not fit the standard 18 inch doll such as American Girl®. An AGAT doll is 16 inches tall and has a slimmer hard plastic body. You can see more info on our Doll Measurements page.

A great pattern, instructions easy to follow, fit is perfect.
This cute pattern is easy to sew and very versatile. Can make it as a summerset or as Pj's.
This is a great pattern, and versatile too. I made a pair of summer shorts by leaving off the ruffle and using denim. This pattern also works well with Flossie Potter Patterns' Weekend Wear pattern. This top and those pants make another great summer outfit!
