Quick and stylish

The pleats add a cute and quick detail to these bottoms. It goes together so quick, with clear instructions. I love how fashionable my dolls look in QTπ Doll Clothing patterns. They never fail to please!

I had the honor of testing this pattern before publication :) It is awesome and adorable!! The shorts and capris are so cute! And they look perfect with the Forget-Me-Knot top! The instructions are clear and easy. I have made several pair of these already and will be making many more! Love them :)


Fun and so simple!

I love these shorts and capris. As always from QTπ the pattern is well written with clear instructions and pictures. The shorts and capris work up super fast and pair perfectly with the Forget Me Knot top. Pair the top and shorts for a fun summer look or the top with the Capris for a fun sporty look.
