The Popsicle Top is a simple, loose tank top that is easy to sew, and pairs perfectly with the Sixth Grade Skirt. You can make it reversible for double the looks! With a hook and loop tape closure in back, it's easy on and off for little hands. This PDF pattern is also a perfect starter pattern for girls that want to learn to sew for their dolls, or for more experienced seamstresses to make a basic doll wardrobe with lots of options.
This classic but simple top is very easily made from a quarter yard of fabric (quilter's fat quarters work great!) in a woven cotton or other lightweight fabric. Mix and match your fabrics and trims for unlimited design options.
This pattern was specifically designed and tested on 18 inch dolls such as American Girl ®. My dolls have a waist measurement average of 10 1/2 inches. Please measure and test the fit on your own doll as there are many on the market and it may not fit the same on all of them.
This classic top pattern is available in 6 fun sizes, designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®, Disney® Animators, Hearts For Hearts Girls®, 14.5 inch dolls such as WellieWishers™, 15" dolls such as Bitty Baby® and 16" A Girl For All Time® dolls.
Recommended Fabrics: quilter's cotton, lightweight cotton, eyelet, seersucker
-1/4 yard of cotton, or other lightweight fabric
-14 inches of lace or trim (trim should be reversible if making a reversible top)
-2-3 inches of hook and loop tape

I just used this pattern today and found it pretty easy to sew. I paired it with the dolphin shorts from pixie faire. I also put some pretty wide lace on the bottom but it looks cute with the shorts. There are a lot of possibilities for making this top simple or elaborate depending on trims used. I'm looking forward to making more of these tops for the girls and my boy.
Love this pattern! It was easy to put together and fits very well. I enjoyed putting this together
This is such a fun top to make! Being reversible, there are no bothersome facings and I get two tops! Directions are clear, with pictures that help a lot. The fit is perfect. I've made several and plan to make more.
I've made 2 so far with ideas for many more. They fit so well, I've used the pattern to draft other tops.
