Galactic Girl



This Galactic Girl pattern will turn your doll into the heroine that she is in your famous movie. This pattern only requires a little bit of easy sewing and with a bottle of dye or a cup of coffee you can turn your already existing stash of fabrics into all the fabrics you need. Let your creativity go crazy when you create her staff or follow the provided instructions.

This pattern will give you instructions on how to sew the shirt and pants and how to create the rest of the items (sash, arm guard, arm wrap, staff, belt and belt bag). A complementing shoe pattern is available separately to complete her outfit. Let the adventures begin!!!

This PDF pattern is designed to fit 18″ dolls such as American Girl®.
