Description

Inspired by the chic, retro-gamine styles seen in high-end French children's collections, our Bonjour, Paris TOP, DRESS, SHORTS and APRON fit perfectly into the closet of any doll who dreams of strolling boulevards, visiting morning markets, and enjoying a flaky pastry at a charming café.

The classic TOP, which can also be made in DRESS length, features neatly stitched front pleats, inverted pleats on the tulip-shaped sleeves, and a ladylike rolled collar embellished with buttons, bows, ribbon flowers or anything else you choose. We've even included photo-illustrated directions to make your own PERFECT BOWS using a fork.

The tailored, canvas-look SHORTS feature working hip pockets, optional cuffs and a front fly closure. Best of all, our cleverly drafted waistband curves subtly higher in back than in front for a snug fit on your doll while she is standing — and a safe, no-gap fit when she sits.

The perfect accessory for every 18" French chef or baker, our CHEF'S APRON features a flattering fit, generous double pocket and neat bias tape binding. We've also included directions to make your own bias binding out of ordinary woven fabric.

The top, dress and shorts in this pattern are rated EASY/INTERMEDIATE for the pleats and a few curved seams.

The chef's apron is rated EASY, though the bias tape binding application should be performed with care.

As an added bonus, we've included a pattern piece for making a super-quick EASY version of our wonderful shorts without pockets.

As always, Lee & Pearl's photo-illustrated directions and computer-drafted, guaranteed-to-fit-together pattern pieces make every step as easy as possible.

MATERIALS:

The garments in this pattern use easy-to-sew fabric you probably already have on hand: ordinary woven fabrics like medium weight quilting cotton or Kona® cotton for the shorts and apron, and shirtings, voile, gingham or lightweight quilting cotton for the top and dress.


For the TOP or DRESS:

1/4 yard (for the top) or 1/3 yard or a fat quarter (for the dress) light to very lightweight woven fabric;

8" x 8" scrap of light to very lightweight woven fabric if a contrast collar is desired;

Hook-and-loop fastener (such as Velcro™);

Ready-made ribbon bow, flower or tiny buttons — or enough 1/8" – 1/4" ribbon to make your own ribbon bow; and

Matching thread


For the SHORTS:

1/4 yard of light to medium weight woven fabric;

5" high x 14" wide piece of lightweight woven fabric for the waist facing and pocket lining;

Hook-and-loop fastener (such as Velcro™); and

Matching thread


For the CHEF'S APRON:

8" high x 16" wide piece of light to medium weight woven fabric;

1 1/2 yards of 1/4" double fold — or 1/2" single fold — bias tape, or enough lightweight woven fabric to make your own;

1 small (4/0) snap; and

Matching thread
