The perfect summer play date starts with this comfy one-piece pull-on romper!

Elastic around the upper bodice and at the waist means you can slip this outfit on your doll without the need for other closures. The feminine ruffles are built right into the design and created with the elastic ... no need for gathering!

This outfit also offers several options, including three different pant lengths and three styles of leg openings, so you can mix-and-match to create exactly the look you want. You can even use this PDF pattern to make cute flannel PJs!

For even more versatility, this pattern was designed to complement the A Lil' Bit Country: Dress, Top, Skirt and Belt Set, also by Matilda's Closet. Combine your favorite skirt option from that pattern with the halter top from this pattern to create a sweet ruffled sundress! Or switch things around and use the pants pieces from this pattern with the ruffled top from the other pattern for yet another fun summer look. You can even create a cute halter top with a ruffled waist! More information about how to combine patterns provided in the instructions. Read this post for more information.
