Silver Screen Wrap Top 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

5   |  

Who doesn't love old movies? Vintage black and white films, also known as the silver screen, told exciting stories aided by glamorous fashion, handsome heroes, and beautiful actresses. The Silver Screen Wrap Top gives homage to that era where femininity was highlighted and women never left the house without wearing red lipstick.

Inspired by a vintage pattern, this quick-sewing top features a lined bodice with an overlay that can be cut on the bias, straight grain, or cross grain. Halter ties around the neck and a bodice that criss-crosses in the back with attached waist ties ensure an easy, universal fit for a variety of 18" dolls. A bonus headband is also included as an extra perk for a coordinated look. Start sewing now and watch a classic old movie with your doll dressed in style--and don't forget the popcorn!

This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.

Silver screen wrapped top

Very easy to sew. Directions were clear. Results were very beautiful. After I sewed my first one, my GD requested one with a different skirt in colors she chose.
