Whether taking long walks on the beach, visiting local flea markets or exploring, this soft and feminine romper is perfect for your favorite doll’s holiday.
With only 4 seams, the Romper is very easy to make. The Bodice is made all-in-one and by using shirring elastic to gather the fabric, a pretty ruffled neckline is formed. Four narrow shoulder straps with knotted ends keep the bodice in place. The Capri-length Pants have an elastic waistband and elastic gathered pant hems echo the neckline ruffle. To accessorize, a soft sash is tied around the waist. This easy pattern is designed to fit 18 & 20-inch dolls such as American Girl® and Australian Girl®.
Fabric Used – Quilters’ Cotton, soft Cotton Lawn and Seersucker were used for the Rompers. Stretch Mesh was used for the Waist Sashes.
