The perfect summer play date starts with this comfy one-piece pull-on romper!
Elastic around the upper bodice and at the waist means you can slip this outfit on your doll without the need for other closures. The feminine ruffles are built right into the design and created with the elastic ... no need for gathering!
This outfit also offers several options, including three different pant lengths and three styles of leg openings, so you can mix-and-match to create exactly the look you want. You can even use this PDF pattern to make cute flannel PJs!
For even more versatility, this pattern was designed to complement the A Lil' Bit Country: Dress, Top, Skirt and Belt Set, also by Matilda's Closet. Combine your favorite skirt option from that pattern with the halter top from this pattern to create a sweet ruffled sundress! Or switch things around and use the pants pieces from this pattern with the ruffled top from the other pattern for yet another fun summer look. You can even create a cute halter top with a ruffled waist! More information about how to combine patterns provided in the instructions.

This pattern went together very quickly. I made the full romper first and found it a little tight to pull over the doll’s bottom. When I made the shorts version, I increased the length of the shoulder straps by approximately 1/4 inch and also increased the length of the waist elastic. It was a lot easier to pull up. Both turned out adorable.
Love the pattern
I made a romper for my granddaughter and I made this romper for her doll so they now have matching outfits. It was easy enough to make in a couple hours and my grandaughter loved it.
the pattern was easy to follow and it fitted the next generation doll with the knob on her back to release her hair really well thank you
