2012 Doll Clothes Batch Two

The next batch of outfits I did in 2012 was sent to a little girl in Ohio for her birthday.

I did most of the sewing in June and July and reused some of the patterns I had used before.  I did a few things using new to me patterns.

Had to enlarge a Joan Hinds 30 Minute Doll Clothes pattern 115% for this dress to get it to fit. With the t-shirt the first attempt went into the waste basket. Found a different pattern that worked better.  I liked the end result and how easy it was to do up.
