I’m so excited to be releasing my new Fun ‘n Frilly Top for 18 ½ inch Cabbage Patch Kids. The feedback from my 18 inch American Girl size pattern has been awesome with everyone agreeing that it is a super easy pattern to make.
The top has an elasticized neckline with a pretty frill, or ‘ruffle’ for my American friends. It can be worn with the frill around the neckline or off the shoulders and looks a little like a peasant top. There are 3 Top Options for you to choose from and a BONUS Dress Options too!
Option 1 is the short top that finishes at the waist with an elastic casing for a clean, cool look. Or you may prefer to leave it loose. Option 2 is the short top with an elasticized waist and finished with a bottom frill. This emphasizes the waistline creating a more feminine look. Option 3 has a longer, tunic length hemline making it perfect to be worn with tights or skinny jeans. By adding your own embellishments such as rickrack or lace you can create a beautiful top that can be worn with skirts, jeans or shorts. Mix and match two fabrics together to make the neckline frill a real feature or add a contrasting belt around the waistline to make it really pop! Any light to medium weight woven fabric is ideal for this pattern but it can also be made with knits. As with all my patterns, you also get access to step-by-step video instructions where I show you how to make the top and dress.
