My model is currently potty learning so we went for the top version. The halter top is super flowy and ties like a bow for sizes 2T and up or has a slightly wider, strap look that uses velcro for the smaller sizes. Dollies must match their miss, so Molly got the top too.
The romper is simply shorts or pants added onto the top. There are so many variations and the entire garment can be made in woven or knit or a combination. I used some beautiful rayon spandex from Vinegar and Honey and the excellent drape is perfect for this pattern! The necktie is a mystery woven from my stash.
This poor doll is probably worthy of its own blog post someday. She recently underwent a massive makeover. She was one of the original American Girl Dolls, Molly. I received her when I was about 8 years old, loved her completely, then passed her onto my younger sister to enjoy. Molly hit hard times after that and hung out in an attic for about 10 years. Beautician Becky to the rescue! I gave her a sponge bath and gently straightened her hair to bring her into 2017. The Cerena top was the perfect way to finish up her new look.
Just check out the surprise/joy on her new owner’s face! Now I need to make the matching mommy version!
