The Candy Shoppe is open! Ezy Circle 'n Crop patterns are SEW fun. This pattern includes pull-on skirts and skorts along with the snappy crop top. All garments based on simple shapes of circles, squares, and triangles. All require active wear stretch knit fabrics.
This pattern is designed to fit standard 18" dolls such as the current Mattel brand American favorite. it will also fit similar dolls, such as the Our Generation doll and The My Life doll. Additionally, it works beautifully for Pleasant Company era AG dolls, and the Australian Girl! (It will NOT fit slimmer 18" dolls, such as the Kidz 'n Cats dolls.)
More details? The pattern includes circle skirts in micro or standard lengths. Choose one length or make a double layer skirt! Top solid fabrics with stretch metch or lace, mix and match colors and more.
There's a beautiful handkerchief hem style based on squares, too. Make these with one or two squares for different looks.
You'll be able to make any circle or handerkerchief skirt into a skort by adding the optional, attached panty. All skirts and skorts pull-on with a self-fabric waistband, there is no need for additional elastic.
The snappy crop top comes in two lengths, as well. Choose the standard length to show just a sliver of midriff, or go with a sport crop for a shorter length. Don't miss the cute, 'double triangle' back or the simple closure with a single, hand-sewn snap.
You'll need active wear stretch knit fabrics for all garments. Ideally, you'll select 4 way stretch knits such as those used for swim or dance wear. A percentage of spandex or Lycra is best for stretch and recovery. Experienced sewists may select more advanced fabric choices such as sequined stretch mesh, cotton/Lycra blend jersey, stretch lace overlays, etc. Sorry, garments are not sized for woven fabrics.
A skirt or skort and crop top can be made with 1/3 yard (or less) of 60" wide knit fabric.
These versatile pieces are fun! Perfect for cheer, swim or dance. Excellent for costumes, such as everyone's favorite woman wonder; great for modern cowgirls, too!
Like the popular 'Big Bow' look? You'll love the included bonus! A worksheet and template for making gorgeous hair bows! Make perfectly balanced hair bows every time.
Make separates or sets, mix or match colors and trims. Add your favorite appliques, embroidered designs or heat transfer vinyl designs to crop tops. Mix pieces with your favorite Janie Carroll patterns, too.
There's also the photo gallery, to inspire your own designing ideas! You'll find adorable outfits, along with fabric notes and sources.
Altogether, it's 25 pages packed with instructions, photos, extras and inspiration!
As always, I do assume basic sewing skills but you'll receive detailed instructions with photos. I'll be with you from the first cut to the last stitch. I strive to include all the little details you need! Her doll will be showing off in fine style in no time!
