Doll Clothes

There are so many commercial patterns for doll clothes, these particular ones are for 18" dolls.
The instructions are very detailed and easy to read.
From this pattern, I made party dress A, the tee shirt, tights and jumper H.

I made the pajamas and slippers from this pattern.

I wouldn't mind a dress like this :)

I used some "roses" machine embroidery on the ribbon instead of topstitching it to the dress.  
I should have used a different color thread because the white doesn't show up at all!

I made the tee shirt and tights from a new "Susan G. Komen 5K Race for the Cure" tee shirt.
The jumper matches it perfectly.

I machine embroidered some bows on the hem, I like the look :)

I made a little set of pajamas, with matching slippers.
The Hello Kitty fabric is from another set of pj's that I repurposed.
That's a working pocket on the pj top, too.

My doll Red Rose is going to model the clothes.
I wrote a post about Red Rose if you're interested, you can see it here.

I made these clothes for my grand daughter Charlotte, who will be 4 years old in a couple of weeks.

I saw a little package of eyeglasses that I am going to buy for Charlotte's doll, and a pair of pink shoes to match her dress.

I love the bow on the back of the dress.
By the way, isn't this dog the cutest?
It's the closest I'm ever going to get to owning a real one :) Lol
