I can’t believe this only took me an hour. I’ve had a bin of Phoebe’s old baby clothes, and some thrifted items, sitting in my craft room for um, 7? years with the intention of turning them into doll clothes for Phoebe’s dolls. These are not the archived, save-forever baby clothes that are all in storage, nor are these the adorable heartbreakingly tiny infant clothes that I turned into her keepsake baby quilt (man I need new photos of that!) These are cute outfits that she wore that I loved the prints and didn’t want to send to goodwill.
I realized that I really enjoy sewing doll clothes from old clothes. I like to use the hems and other finished details so I don’t have to do all that teeny tiny sewing. And the fit is so forgiving with dolls. Maybe this will be the year Phoebe finally gets a doll tree with little presents full of doll clothes. I know I’ve typed those exact words before.
