Children will love these cozy, cute outfits to dress up their toys for a day at the seashore! Choose from either a cardigan or pullover, striped or plain. Pair that with shorts in two styles: wide-legged or bloomers. The kerchief gives a perfect punch of colour to the outfit, and can be worn around the neck or head.
This outfit is designed to fit my Scraps Chaps, Savannah Chaps, and Backyard Bandits toys. The smaller size will also fit my Wood-Elf doll, while the larger size will fit my larger sized toys, like the Big Teddy. Both sizes are knit from the same pattern. The pattern is experienced-beginner level. All pieces are knit flat, and then seamed and assembled.
