This digital doll clothes pattern will let you sew a dress and skirt for a Mori Girl outfit for your 14-14.5 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 and autumnal oranges, reds and yellows. The dress features ruffled layers and a clean looking, zipper-style hook and loop closure in the back. Also included is a Slip Skirt. Mori style favours a lot of layering and the Slip Skirt works perfectly under the dress. This dress can be used as a ‘foundation layer’ for Mori Girl style, but also works as a cute, everyday dress.
