On my last visit to my 5 year old GD Abby, I gave her the following 2 outfits. One for her 18" doll Lulu...
|This isn't Lulu, it's my "model" for trying on clothes. Her hair got cut off and she was sold at a garage sale.|
and one for a boy doll. The plaid fabric is something that I picked up at Good Will and the black was given to me by my oldest GD.
Abby has 4 dolls that she plays with a lot. When I was there, I noticed that I had been favoring Lulu with the most clothes. Probably because there are so many cute patterns for that size doll (18"). So I decided I needed to make some more for the smaller dolls, 14" and 15".
They also didn't have any underwear. I bought some cotton knit somewhere and decided to try to make panties. I have a pattern for an 18" doll that included them, so when I made them, I was happy with the result (on the left). I didn't have a pattern for a smaller doll, so I just decreased the pattern in my printer and made a smaller pair that might (hopefully) fit a 14" or 15" doll,
Here's another outfit that I made for the 14" doll, Gracie. Now 3 of the dolls have an outfit out of the same plaid fabric.
Today while out shopping I stopped at the Good Will store and saw some fat quarters. There are 2 of each and they are Moda fabrics. I paid $2.99 for 2 FQs of each (3 1/2 yards)!
I still have a couple more things to get done before Christmas not including baking cookies. We're looking forward to our oldest GS getting back from college for the Christmas break!
