Beach Babe On-The-Go Pattern for 18-inch dolls
Whether your doll is in the mood for a game of volleyball, feels like lacing up her in-line skates for a jaunt on her favorite trail, plans to spend the afternoon with the girls at the movies … or just needs to slow down and lounge on the beach with a good book, this fun little knit outfit can take her there in style!
Use this combination active wear/swimsuit pattern to make the skirt with briefs attached as a skort … or keep the pieces separate for even more versatility. She’ll be able to hop in the lake one minute, pull on the skirt and head to the mall the next! You could even use the pattern to create cute undergarments or combine it with the compatible Matilda’s Closet Atta Girl Long-Distance Running Outfit for added outfit groupings or legging lengths.
Thanks to four-way stretch fabric and elastic, no closures are needed for the sporty cropped top. Simply pull it up over your doll’s hips and she’ll be ready to play. This PDF pattern also includes instructions to add a lettuce-edged finish to the skirt for a feminine touch, as well as alternative cutting lines for the standalone briefs for those who want more of a bikini-height waistline.
