In an earlier post, I mentioned getting all the 18” doll clothes patterns. Well, I have been putting them to use lately. I have just a few more things to finish and my sewing projects for this year will be complete. I am trusting you not to mention this to my daughters – I have managed to keep it a secret so far, sewing late into the night after they have gone to bed. All the clothes are modeled on the same doll for sake of time.
Disney Princess dress, Ariel – colors of my choosing. Simplicity 5705
Disney Princess Dress, Belle (without drape and gauntlets) colors of my choosing – Simplicity 5705 I intend to make a black shrug for this one, if time allows.
Dress – Simplicity 4654 This one is rather simple, but pretty in a Little House on the Prairie way. :)
Shirt and Poodle skirt – McCalls 8555 This is an older pattern, but I really love the outfits! The poodle skirt is so easy to make! I still have to sew the snaps on the back of the shirt, but other than that, it is all done.
What the girls also do not know is that they will each be getting nightgown with a matching nightgown for their dolls. I found these on sale at Kohls, and with my coupons and discounts, I got them for a great deal!
So it looks as if the girls and their dollies will be well clothed in the coming year!
