Nautical Top & Removable Collar 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

11 reviews   |  

Ahoy Mateys! Here's a Nautical Top and Dress, by Forever 18 Inches, to shiver your timbers: they're both quick sewing projects with three main pattern pieces--and there's no facing, no lining or set-in sleeves, which means no fuss! The Classic Sailor Collar and Dickey are equally fast and simple to construct because they're detachable rather than permanently stitched into the neckline. When your dolls are feeling their sea legs the Collar and Dickey can be snapped together and fitted over the Top or Dress; if they feel like styling a simple shift or blouse with a sophisticated cut the Dress or Top can be worn independently. The Dress also has an option for a tacked-in Dickey for a streamlined nautical vibe. Seamstresses will have fun playing around with the multiple options and combinations that can be made with this pattern--and because it's an easy-level, user-friendly pattern it's perfect for on-line sellers and craft fairs. Use this versatile pattern to create a variety of looks easily and quickly. You'll be collecting "Pieces of Eight" wherever you sell!

This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.

Nautical Top & Removable Collar 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

The pattern is very cute. I made the first one according to the directions, but wasn't pleased with the results. The top was too "unstructured" and didn't lay well. (The fabric was cotton and should have laid just fine) The second one I made a lining for the top and it worked terrific. It lays very smooth and well on the doll.

nautical outfit

Good. I just had to add 1/2 inch to the front panel and then it fit Chatty Cathy perfectly.

Nautical dress extra pattern

The dress pattern came with the nautical top pattern. I made the dress and it was very easy and fit well. However, I did not add the dickey. The dress came up enough in front that it was not needed.
