Dolls, Dresses and Twins
My daughter and niece were born a mere six weeks apart. It's so much fun to treat them as twins sometimes with the matching pj's and clothes. They love to play with each other and play house together and even play "mommy" together. For Christmas, I couldn't help but to make these two little dolls for them.
The doll pattern is the Tag-A-Long doll from the book Wee Wonderfuls. It's a great book filled with cute dolls and things to make. I know I'll be making a few more from there.
I changed a few things on the doll. First I made the legs out of felt instead of cotton and for the dresses, I used knits instead of quilting fabric so that the doll's dresses would match . . .
these dresses. I used Lil Blue Boo's A-line dress pattern and made simple versions to match.
The girls loved the dolls and loved their matching dresses!
