Time Traveler Vintage Blouse & Playsuit Skirt Bundle 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

  |  

Does you doll love vintage fashion? Does she want to feel stylish while visiting friends from different eras? The Time Traveler's Vintage Blouse is the perfect solution for her fashion needs! Inspired by an authentic sewing pattern from the 1940s, the blouse features a softly gathered neckline with a matching binding, a rounded hem, and a back closure that can be fastened with snaps, hook and loop tape, or authentic buttons and buttonholes. Two sleeve options are available: Option 1 features a 1940s-style sleeve with a longer length, high-cut sleeve cap, and an inverted sleeve pleat. The shorter-length Option 2 sleeve has a fully gathered sleeve cap and bottom edge with bindings, and is appropriate for periods from the late 1930s through the early 1950s. A simplified version of the blouse with a lower neckline and without the neck pleats can also be made by substituting Template C for Pattern Front A. You can even use the simplified version as a modern-day blouse. No matter which version you make, your doll will be ready for school, play, and fun times for then and now! 

The Forever 18 Inches Playsuit Skirt is an authentic reproduction of a vintage pattern. It's designed to fit over the Forever 18 Inches Cat's Meow Vintage Rompers, as well as the long bloomers in the Forever 18 Inches Aloha Vintage Swimsuit. Features include a gathered skirt sewn into a fitted waistband, a front opening, and optional pockets. The skirt can close with button-covered snaps, hook and loop tape, or even authentic buttons and buttonholes. It can also be paired with any vintage blouse or top pattern, such as the Time Traveler Vintage Blouse, for a classic swing-era retro look, or worn as a classic skirt with a modern-day top for a timeless fusion of then and now. Your doll can time travel with ease and look great combining her favorite looks!

The Playsuit Skirt is available in 3 different bundles paired with the Cat's Meow Vintage Rompers, Aloha Vintage Swimsuit, and Time Traveler Vintage Blouse, to save you money.
