Back in the fall, Shannon's daughter, GraciAnn had a birthday. Shannon had mentioned that GraciAnn was really into doll clothes. Well, I knew I didn't have time to sew some clothes nor did I want the headache and frustration that would cause me. I like to sew, but I want the products that I make to be high quality. Trying something for the first time would not be the quality that I like.
Instead I went the route that I knew I could accomplish. I got on the internet and found a crochet doll dress pattern.Well, a dress wasn't enough, so I made a hat as well. I looked and looked and can't find the pattern for the hat. If I find it I will add it. You can find the doll dress pattern here.
Here is a closeup of the dress. The sides are open to ease the dolls arms in.
Here is a closeup of the hat. It is pretty close to a preemie size hat.
I love the shell design of the dress. I need to figure out how to make a larger version for my sweet Anna.
I've noticed that little girls like to match their doll clothing. Thankfully, I had enough yarn to make GraciAnn a matching hat. This pattern is called the Sunshine Beanie and is from one of my favorite pattern designers, Ambassador Crochet.
I hope you like these gifts that I made. I also hope that GraciAnn is enjoying her new doll clothes.
