Made entirely of cotton and based on the traditional nurses’ uniform, this relatively easy PDF pattern offers a gorgeous little outfit which comprises the standard uniform, a cute folded cap and candy-striped apron. Details include a beautifully fitted front-opening dress with a tiny thermometer pocket, elastic to keep the cap on your mini nurse’s head and contrasting pocket flaps jazz up the apron. This pattern is designed to fit 18” soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®.
Fabric Requirements – Cotton Sheeting was used for the white uniform and cap; Quilter’s Cotton was used for the blue checked Nurse’s Uniform and Candy Striper Aprons; Medium-Weight Iron-On Interfacing was used to stiffen the cap.
