Sweet Sunshine Blouse 18" Doll Clothes

  |  

Flossie Potter's "Sweet Sunshine Blouse" is a darling sleeveless blouse PDF sewing pattern designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®. The blouse closes in front with your choice of working or decorative buttons. It has a stand-up collar that is slanted in front to mirror the lower center edge, which forms an inverted "V" for added interest. The surrounding wide, gathered, lace reaches just over the shoulder to give the impression of a cap sleeve.

The 18-page PDF sewing pattern contains 13 pages of instruction with full-color assembly photos, two pages of printable summary instructions (to save on printer ink!), and two pages of pattern pieces to make your own Sweet Sunshine Blouse!


This top looks great with the skirt in Flossie Potter's "1950s Department Store" pattern. (skirt pictured on the cover)

This blouse could also be paired with these other Flossie Potter patterns:
"Eclectic Closet Flounce Blouse & Skirt" (skirt)
"Bolero Vest & Gaucho Skirt" (skirt)
"Patchwork Petals Wrap Skirt"
"Jellies" (jams shorts)
