New Doll - New Dress

This is a Sonja Hartman doll from the Kidz n Katz range.  She is a very dainty 18" doll with nine ball joints.  I made her a dress from the Katie pattern as mentioned in a previous post.  This time I did the skirt gathered instead of pleated.  This style of dress suits this doll nicely I think.  She looks very summery doesn't she.

New Dress

This dress is from A Closet Full of Doll Clothes by Rosemarie Ionker.  The cuffs on this dress were a bit small for my Gotz doll so I put elastic in them, next time I'll alter the pattern slightly to allow for using a different size of doll to the one in the book.  I'll also do bodices with lining in future as it gives a neater finish on the inside.
This year I also want to make doll quilts.  The one above is made using a printed log cabin design so there wasn't really much patchwork to do on it.

In the Rosemarie Ionker book there are four sizes of pattern so I had to buy another doll in a different size!!!  This one is 14 inches and is an Antonio Juan doll.
