Smoby Doll

The second hand doll was fed up with standing around in just her underwear.  This is what I came up with for her...
There is minimal sewing in this outfit.  I used the fabric that I cut out of one of those cardigans with a sort of vest top attached to the front.  I'd liked the cardigan but not the vest top as it was too low at the front for me.  So, I cut the fabric and utilised the seam of one part for the top of the little suntop you see here.  The skirt is from the lower half of the vest.  Altogether it turned out nice and she looks happy wearing it.


  1. She looks much happier than she did in that awful crocheted dress! That's a very nice outfit.

    I like using old clothing to make doll clothes too. We can get it at Salvation Army Warehouse for 65 cents a pound, which is much cheaper than going to a fabric shop. And if you plan it right, you can use the already-finished edges to your advantage.

  2. I just got a smoby mademoiselle doll for my granddaughter, and she loves it BUT I cannot find any pattern that fits her . Do you make your own or have you found a pattern that fits?
