18" Doll Cross-Body Vest Pattern

Updated: Jan 26, 2023

As soon as my younger girls jumped on the 18" doll craze, they needed me to make all the things I could for them. Seeing as the price of the clothes for these dolls was WAY more than a handful of yarn, I was happy to oblige.






I figured why not take on this new adventure with a creative mind and try to think outside of the box. I began designing all these cute accessories, which then lead to building stock for shows and gifts for their dolly friends and so on.


The cross-body design of this vest is perfect for any fashion forward doll. It's super cute, super easy, & designed to fit most 18” Dolls (ie American Girl, My life, etc.).


Now that my little ones have grown out if this doll baby faze, I'm feeling a little sad and nostalgic. As a way for me to relive their little years a bit I decided to edit some of these patterns and give them a touch up. Now I'm sharing this one with all of you.



Here's what you'll need to get started...........
