Your 14.5-inch doll will look adorable in this gorgeous Playsuit specially designed for shopping with friends at the Mall. With an attached pocket purse in which to put her pennies, she has her hands free for lots of parcels and shopping bags.
The Bodice has a round shallow-scoop topstitched neck, gathered bell sleeves and an optional motif on the front. The Pants, although loose-fitting in the leg, are fitted around the body and have front darts which take in the fullness around the waist. Double layered, topstitched ruffles feature at the hem. The working Pocket Purse closes with a small snap and a pretty button finishes the front flap. Straps are personal choice from chain, beads, ribbon, braid, etc., even hand-embroidered chain stitch is suitable. The Playsuit closes at Center back with Hook & Loop tape. This easy pattern is designed to fit 14.5” dolls such as WellieWishers™.

Very easy pattern to put together. I love the trendy, cropped boho style of the pants and fantastic fit of the suit. The little purse is perfectly sized. My niece was thrilled with the playsuit and has demanded a few more.
So great to hear! Glad you're enjoying the pattern!
