Your 14.5-inch friend will be ready to run and play in these cute shorts-length overalls featuring a slightly gathered, dropped waist and lightly flared legs.
Designed to fit over a snug-fitting top, this outfit is partially lined with buttoned or snapped straps that meet in a “V” at the back. Choose soft, draping fabrics for a dressier, skirted look or use more traditional woven fabrics, such as a light denim or seersucker, for more traditional appeal.
This PDF pattern is a resized version of our original Drop-Waisted Shortalls pattern for 18-inch dolls, which was originally created as part of the Summer Camp Collection by Matilda’s Closet. Other patterns in the collection include the Mock Button-Front Shirt, Roll-Up Capris and Bucket Hat.
Specification: Drop-Waisted Shortalls for 14.5-inch dolls
