Surfrider Sundress and Romper 18” Doll Clothes Pattern

17   |  

Located in the heart of Malibu, Surfrider Beach is the place to be in the summer!  And now your 18 inch doll can have the perfect sundress to wear when she visits. This pretty Malibu Libby Collection sundress is polished, flattering, and perfect for the sunny weather! Design details include: A faux button front closure, princess seams, feminine gathering, and cute front pockets. Your 18 inch doll will look amazing in this perfect little summer dress! 

Bonus Romper Design: If play is on your mind, try the romper variation, capturing the same charming feeling! The romper and dress use the same bodice with the front opening. The fit of the romper is a little less gathered, creating a streamlined look. Front pockets and cuffs bring a hint of nautical detail to this super cute design!

Dress design opens in the front using either a hook and loop tape or snap closure under non-functional buttons. This results in a very easy "on and off" garment. If desired, functional buttons and buttonholes can be sewn. The romper design opens in the front in the same manner, but just to the base of the fly stitching. 

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

-1/4 yard  fashion fabric

Great little dress and romper

Pattern instructions are detailed and easy to follow. I made the dress first and loved the finished product so continued on and made a romper. Both fit perfectly and are nicely detailed. Love the lined bodice.

Easy to make and so cute!

This was a great pattern. Very easy to make, well fitting, and I loved the result. I will definitely be making it again!

This is so cute! Went together easily. Though directions were clear, I found it annoying to have to jump back and forth while making the romper. I am obsessive about making sure my seam allowances are EXACTLY 1/4", but I found this pattern to be VERY snug on my 18" girl doll (not AG). Next time I make this (and there WILL be an next time), I will enlarge the pattern pieces by 1.- 2%. Thank you, Liberty Jane! You continue to make the best patterns!

Sweet pattern! Easy follow directions. I can not stop making them. I've one of each for every girl I know that owns an American girl doll as Christmas gifts.


So cute!

My niece requested the romper for her doll, and it turned out super cute. Easy to make, and it fit perfectly. :)
