Last month we released the long awaited, Ballerina Doll pattern in sewing and machine embroidery versions. There are so many possibilities with this doll pattern, but first, we wanted to make sure we designed a Ballerina Top and Skirt to dress the doll with!
In case you didn't know, I grew up training to be a professional ballet dancer (dancing 6-7 days a week) and going to school (half day school - half day dance!). When I graduated, I took my professional ballet teacher's certification and ran my own dance studio for 7 years before we started our family. Ballet is near and dear to my heart, and I am thrilled to be able to share this pattern with you today!!!
Dance like no one is watching!
The Ballet Wrap Top & Skirt pattern includes pieces to fit (3) sizes of Bee Sew Inspired Dolls: 14”, 16” and 18” dolls.
