Pretty Playmates 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

4 reviews   |  

Your 18-inch doll will look adorable in either the gorgeous Dress or chic Playsuit from Little Miss Muffett. Both of these charming options have a piped Bodice Neckline and Piped Shoulder Straps. The Dress has a full gathered Skirt with ruffled Tulle inserted into the lower hem while the Playsuit has Capri-length pants and piped front pockets, and for fun, an optional Big Flower with a pretty center button softens the clean lines of the piped Bodice. The Bodice is fully lined and both the Dress and Playsuit close at Center Back with Hook & Loop Tape.

This fairly easy intermediate pattern is designed to fit 18-inch soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®.
