Inspired by “Heidi™,” the “Chalet School™” books, and my love of mountains, this adorable pattern allows your doll to visit the alps too. Alternatively, take a different twist and you have an outfit for your doll working around the house or creating craft projects. Take it a step further by removing the apron and scarf, and you have a beautiful pinafore over a smart blouse, which is just perfect for an outing to town or a visit to the relatives.
The “Tyrol” outfit consists of a crisp, unlined blouse (with optional collar) and a trendy pinafore. Both pieces have easy-to-open back closures of hook and loop tape or snap fasteners. The gentle apron adds versatility to the pattern, while the bonus headscarf has extra-long ties to allow for easy securing. Also included is an extra-large scarf for those dolls with lots of hair. There is also a special section in this pattern demonstrating the ribboned variation of the pinafore.
“Tyrol” is designed to fit 16-inch dolls like A Girl For All Time®.

I love making international costumes, so this was a perfect pattern. However, as I was making it, I realized that it could be so many more outfits -- school clothes, work clothes, an apron for baking, or for a prairie apron. The trims and fabrics make all the difference. One of the fastest sewing projects I have done in a long time, too.
