This digital doll clothes pattern will let you sew a slip you can use as a base layer for a Mori Girl outfit or as a stylish sundress for your Maru and Friends® doll.
If you spot a girl that looks as though she is a fairy tale forest dweller who has just stepped out of an enchanted wood, chances are good you’ve spotted a Mori Girl. Born in Japan as a subculture, Mori Girl style embodies living in the moment and existing in harmony with nature.
Mori (meaning forest) Girl style is all about natural fibres and colours from nature – creams, browns, greens and autumnal oranges, reds and yellows. The style also favours a lot of layering. This dress can be used as a ‘’base layer” for Mori Girl style, but also works as a cute, everyday dress.
Make your Slip Sundress out of white, ivory or cream coloured materials for Mori Girl Style…or go crazy with patterns and colours and make a dress for everyday wear!
