THIS IS A CROCHET PATTERN ONLY - NOT THE ACTUAL ITEM
PB079 - 18" Doll At The Hop Crochet Pattern
Hop back into the 1950’s with this swingin’ doll outfit! From the poodle skirt and the retro blouses to the bobby socks and two-toned oxfords, this getup screams 1950’s. The poodle skirt is kept full by a simple petticoat. The headband and belt are included in the pattern too. You can also decorate the poodle skirt with three different appliqués, a poodle, a Scottish terrier, or a telephone. This ensemble will make your doll look like she stepped right out from the 1950’s!
The crochet pattern for this 18" doll would also fit the 18" American Girl Doll.
