*Earn 50 Tillie Tokens when you purchase this pattern!*


You’ll have the best dressed doll at summer camp in this fun little top!

No one will guess the optional row of tiny buttons down the front hides hook and loop tape underneath, which allows for easy dressing for even the littlest fingers. Use this PDF pattern to create a sleeveless shirt that is fully lined, with additional details such as front and back pleating, topstitching and a rounded stand-up mandarin collar to complete the look.

Designed as part of the Summer Camp Collection by Matilda’s Closet, this shirt complements the Roll-Up Capris and Bucket Hat. Create the entire outfit, then add the coordinating Convertible Bunk Bed pattern by AptOne8, and your little friend will be all set for summer camp!

    I love the look of buttons but hate making tiny buttonholes. This pattern came together easily and is a great way to use up batik scraps.
