Easy to sew, the Tri-City Knit Dress is a great pattern for your first knit outfit. A serger is not required. Detailed instructions and pictures guide you through each step. Soon your "little mommy's" baby will be dressed in style.
The Tri-City Knit Dress has a curved empire waist for a flattering look and Velcros® or snaps in back. The PDF pattern includes 2 length variations (above the knee, and long shirt), and 3 sleeve length variations (long, three-quarter, and short). The Circle Leggings feature a patch on the rear, cuffs and elastic in the waist. Designed to fit 15" baby dolls such as Bitty Baby® and Bitty Twin®, this pattern will also fit other 15" baby style dolls.
It's easy to create different looks by varying fabric, sleeve length, and skirt length. Cute leggings and headband complete the outfit. Choose a playful knit with contrasting solids, mix patterns or make with all one fabric. Lots of fun options are included!

This is a very cute pattern. I have made 3 outfits and plan on making more. Fits the Bitty Baby very good and would highly recommend this pattern.
The Tri City tunic and pants is so cute. The butt detail on the pants is so very 'baby' appropriate! The tunic top is so cute. Fits great , would have preferred a facing at the neck edge for cleaner finish but that is a personal choice. Just the sweetest baby outfit!
Pattern didn't fit the doll at all. I have increased the size 10% but haven't tried to see if it fits.
I LOVE this pattern. Easy to make outfit, and the fit is perfect. I made a lot of beautiful variations. My only wish is that this pattern be made also for 18", 20" and 22" baby dolls like vintage Gotz,, Zapf and Lissi (when you do, let me know). Highly recommend!
