Buy the doll and clothing patterns together and save!
At just 10 1/2 inches, this little doll is small enough to be made quickly, but big enough to wear lots of adorable little outfits that aren’t too finicky to sew.
The outfit includes a little pair of panties, blouse with sweet little tucks (plus a no-tuck version), a-line dress with pockets, bloomers, and cute little shoes. The dress can be worn alone, or as a jumber over the blouse. The blouse and bloomers make perfect pajamas! There's also a lovely nightgown with tucked detail on front and back. Even with all their adorable little details, all the clothing pieces are very quick and easy to sew.
Both the braided hair style and the ponytail variation combine the long, flowing hair that children love, with ultra-easy, no-crochet construction. Instructions for a clever and low-cost (or no-cost!) adjustable hair loom are also included.
Tutorial-style pattern is lavishly illustrated with large color photos, showing you all the step-by-step details. Lots of tips from my years of doll-making experience will help you make it fast and fun.
