Your 18” doll will look adorable in her Kitty Costume which is just perfect for her tap dance recital. The costume includes four pieces:
The pull-on bodysuit has a fur-trimmed, off-the-shoulder neckline and is complete with knee-length tights and a fur-trimmed semi-circular skirt. Ribbon ties on the shoulders add to the overall effect and a furry tail is attached to the back of the bodysuit pants. The bodysuit which is pulled on feet first, is made from Cotton Elastane which gives it a super snug fit. No Hook & Loop Tape is needed because of the fit.
This easy pattern is designed to fit 18” soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl ®.
Fabric Used: Cotton Elastane, Spandex and Lycra were used for the Bodysuits and Gloves; Short Pile Fur was used to trim the Neckline of the Black and White Bodices, Skirt hem edges and Glove cuffs. A feather boa was hand-stitched to the pink outfit for fun.

My pride and joy. After not testing for a while, I went headfirst onto this unique and magnificent pattern. Just seeing first what it looked like, immediately knew I had to make it. Then came choosing them fabric once i had decided what I had in mind. Right from the beginning till the end, the details, instructions, photos and all were exactly as required and I put together my “master piece” that is one of my favorite and dearest tests ever. Thanks from the bottom of my heart for this wonderful pattern. I highly highly recommend it to EVERYONE.
