Kay Carr’s ‘70 Essentials is the third pattern in the Kay Carr bundle. It makes a mix and match wardrobe complete for any doll if it is teamed with Kay Carr’s ‘70s Mix & Match as well as Kay Carr’s ‘70s Cardigan.
Every stylish doll has that one dress that just goes with everything in her wardrobe. Here is that perfect dress in Kay Carr’s ‘70s Essentials! It goes under any of the sweaters or cardigans in this collection or others you may already have in your own wardrobe.
The dress is an easy knit from the neck down with 4 buttons in the back. It has ribbing at the neck and on the sleeve cuffs. A stylish dress which is slightly fitted in the waist but curves to form a straight skirt. Wear it plain or dress it up with the belt and bag purse with the beautiful open lace stitch.
Do you remember the ‘70s Hot Pants? Here they are for your 18” doll. They have a twisted rib waist with a button band in the back. So cute with the belt and purse to match. A great little pair for shorts for any mix and match wardrobe and very easy to knit.
