Spring is in the air with this delightfully versatile Halter Neck Vest and Skirt outfit. Mix and match fabrics, use contrasting fabrics; go black and white for a bold stylish outfit or cute animal prints for something fun, anything goes and the options are endless. Worn on its own or over a pretty blouse, the fully lined and piped Vest sports a cute round-edged fully lined piped pocket and halter strap. Pretty buttons finish off the Front edge of the Vest which closes with hook and loop tape. The two-tiered skirt has a faux tulle petticoat and the full gathered waist is attached to a waistband which closes at Back with a Snap. This relatively easy pattern is designed to fit 14.5-inch dolls such as WellieWishers™.
