Down to the wire this week! I was going to do something else, but had to come up with something last minute when plan #1 turned out to be way, way more complicated than I expected. I went into Thursday barely closer to a finished pattern than I was on Monday ^^;
That’s the problem with the big dolls: at this size fabric physics do a shift so things that don’t work in ALL THE OTHER SIZES I sew for start to work (like linings) so patterns that are already tricky in tiny size become exponentially more difficult.
…But not this one! That’s why it’s called “Simply Cute”. Friend came over with her daughter and I made her daughter’s Wellie Wisher (a size I don’t sew for) one of these dresses in 15 minutes after she picked out fabric–and that includes taking the measurements and doing the math for a new doll! Whenever people ask what to start with, if they want casual clothes I point them towards “Basics” and when they want girly stuff I point them to “Simply Cute”
