Surfrider Sundress and Romper 18” Doll Clothes Pattern

22   |  

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

Surfrider Sundress and Romper

I like the styling of this sundress and found it easy to make up but the back of the skirt needed to be gathered in order to fit the bodice and there were no markings or indications that it needed to be gathered. Overall lovely detailing.

This pattern was so easy to follow and the romper came out so cute! I love it and almost kept it for myself!. ( it was sent to my great grand daughter).

Perfect Outfit for Lea Clark

I was looking for a Romper type outfit to make for Lea Clark and this one fit the bill! Instructions were clear and easy to follow. I made both the Romper and the Sundress using "leafy" fabrics like Lea would wear. My four year old grand-daughter was so pleased and commented that Grandma has been so busy. Thank You!

Surfrider Sundress and Romper

I made the romper and had to add a cuff because it was very short

Surfrider Sundress

Sundress is so cute and for the most part was easy to understand the instructions. The only problem I had was with the front placket which I think I finally figured out.
