Mini-Dakota is a swing top pattern for 18" dolls with three sleeve options. Make it sleeveless for the Summer months or with sleeves for the cooler months. Use your favorite designer cottons or knits for a casual look, or dress it up with fancier fabrics. The bonus Mini-Sophie pants or Bermuda shorts complete the set. See our matching girl-sized Dakota pattern (sold separately or as a bundle) for a "Just Like Me" look.
