The Liberty Jane® Outback Libby Kings Canyon Peplum Top features just the right amount of detail to make your 18 inch doll feel special! Capturing the style of the Australian outback, the delicate lace down center front and around the sleeves gives it that feminine touch while the high-low peplum adds just enough fashion flair.
Design details include: a split front neck opening, perfect for lace embellishments or even some delicate embroidery! Raglan style sleeves make this top easy to sew and the neck binding detail gives it a professional finish. This top looks great paired with her Aussie-styled moto vest or jacket and a classic pair of jeans or a button front mini skirt!
Suggested fabrics for this PDF sewing pattern include batiste, lightweight rayon, dotted swiss and other lightweight cottons. Lace trims work best when there is one scallop edge and one straight edge. Tiny cording can be purchased, made from pearlized cotton embroidery cord, or even braiding embroidery floss. If you like, try adding a tiny bead to the ends to give it that extra touch!

Clear easy to follow directions, A quick sew.
The perfect summer blouse, so feminine too. Lots of ways to dress it up or have the casual look. I didn't have any lace on hand so chose an embroider cotton and embroidery floss for the ties. Fits my Karito girl too. Could make it without a peplum as well. Thank you for this wonderful pattern!
This is a sweet little top and very easy to put together. It fit perfectly and I used a fabric scrap from my stash - a light yellow cotton with tiny kitties and flowers. I found some fun beads for the neckline ties and finished the front with tiny pearly beads. I'll make this pattern again as it's simplicity lends itself to some creative embellishments.
I am an experienced seamstress, but lack the time to tackle complex projects, so I appreciated the quickness that this pattern went together. The download was easy and the instructions and photos were clear. It looks and fits well. I had plenty of fabric so I made the peplum slightly fuller, and added a little to the back as I prefer a "beefier" closure. I didn't have any cording, so I made one top without, and the other I round braided some embroidery floss. I highly recommend this pattern.
Pattern was very easy to use and finished product was very nice
