Summer Top and Pants

The last few days have been very productive.  The three dolls that had been left out for new clothes now all have something summery to wear.  I'm quite pleased with how this one turned out...
The top is made out of a child's sock.  It is a bit raw around the cut edges but I'm ok with this, there's only me 'playing' with my dolls.  The pants look just how I wanted them from the front.  The back is rather baggy because this doll has quite wide hips and very narrow waist.  So there is quite a bit of overlap where I've added the Velcro closure.  But, as I say, it's my doll so that's ok.
This doll is a Best Friends Club doll.  It was on special offer from one of those bargain shops, wish I'd bought another one now but they are sold out.  I think it was something like £14.99.


  1. Oh my goodness! 3 posts in 3 days. This feels like Christmas. I just left a post on the dark haired doll with the new orange skirt set and refreshed your site and saw this new post. This little lady's pantsuit is so cute too. I am going to have to try some sock clothes myself. Her shirt worked out well and I love capris. I think they are so feminine. Thanks again for posting =)

  2. She looks so cute the top and capris! How fun to make clothes for dolls and then get to dress them :)

  3. You have really outdone yourself Ann. I'm afraid I'm all talk and no action and my girls are suffering because of it. I love those pants. They're especially nice for articulated dolls because they hide their knee joints.

  4. She is an exceptionally pretty doll and I want one too! The outfit you have made her suits her very well. I am looking forward to seeing more outfits that you make.
