From nurse I ended up being housewife.All my years I love being creative.Writing short stories,poems etc.My late Mom was a professional knitter so I suppose I ve inherit some of her talents,Thanks to South African schooling those days it were an obligation to learn how to sew and knit at Primary school and early High School years.I made my own doll clothes and even knit my own dolls at 7-8 years with help of Mom of course..Being at home now I have all the time to develop my talent.I started by sewing my own clothes then my teenage daughter came up with such complicated designs.She actually pushed me to create and sew dresses for her that I thought I will never be able to do.My kids has then encourage me to open my own Online Shop which Im doing now with the help of a special friend , Liese and her sister who gave me so much support . Without their help my dreams would have never become true to have my own online shop. .Hoping that I will bring 100% satisfaction to my clients.I Love Feedback .Thanks for Reading.View all patterns by designer (49) »
This is one of my own designs to knit a cute " shell like " low waist dress , hair clip mini hat and shoes for American Girl and other soft bodied 18" dolls with similar measurements . I used Special by Style Craft D.K Yarn and my testers used Lincraft D.K and also Red Heart Sport Yarn both had positive results and the dress is a perfect fit for the Australian Girl Doll too.
The pattern include some photos illustration.
