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 a PDF Pattern designed to fit Mini American Girl Dolls.
The Pattern included 2 variation for dress , a belt and Bonnet . The dress is work from bottom upwards ( all in one ) until arm hole division.
The back of dress is open and you can use sew on snaps or velcro for closure.
I have design the dress using about 12 grm plain 3 Ply Baby / Light Fingering Yarn also using the same pattern and did a 2 tone dress very small amount of contrast yarn needed.
The dress with flowers as decoration I use Baumwolle Mercerized Cotton which really gives it a good to touch outcome.
For all the dresses I used size 3mm ( US 2 - 2.5 ) straight knitting needles.
My gauge is 32sts = 4'
The Bonnet has a short 3" ribbon on each side just long enough to tie a knot or make a bow so if you prefer it longer add 1" to each side.
This is a PDF Pattern and NOT a finish product.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
32 sts = 4''
