This digital doll clothes pattern will let you sew a gorgeous winter outfit in the Mori Girl style for your 18 inch doll.
If you see 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 living in harmony with nature.
Mori (meaning forest) Girl style is all about natural fibres and colours from nature – creams, browns, greens, greys and autumnal oranges, reds and yellows. The style also favours a lot of layering. With a long-sleeved Tunic, a Skirt and knee-high socks, this outfit is perfect for winter!
The QTπ Doll Clothing Sweater Mukluks are the perfect finishing touch for your Mori Girl Winter ensemble. They are easy to make and look so good with this outfit! Click the photo below for the pattern.
