I made this doll from the Kit, Chloe and Louise pattern, to go to a little blond friend of ours. Our friend Penny is a super talented and creative girl and I was so pleased when her mom said she was loving the toys I’ve been making because I’d already had this one in mind for her. Never too old for dolls!
Her outfits were all made from recycled baby/kids clothes. I am definitely still loving this process, although it’s not always as quick and easy as I imagine it will be. I’ve probably had as many failures as successes but I learn a helpful trick each time. Once I have it nailed down I’ll post some tutorials. Basically I just use the pattern pieces from the clothing in the pattern and start cutting trying to keep as many finished hems and cute details as possible. If my Bernina was up and running I think these would be a breeze but as it is I’m having lots of machine-eating-knits delays. It’s worth it though because it’s so nice to have soft, cozy outfits for these soft, cozy dolls.
