Now they have clothes!

I had a hard job making clothes to fit these dolls. They are adapted from a teddy bear pattern, to get that 'babyish' look, but I hadn't thought ahead to fitting clothes on them. Once I realised that dolls clothes don't have to be made or fit in the same way as regular children's clothes, it became a little easier. Also, trousers had to be made very baggy, otherwise they couldn't sit. I had quite a few false starts, and there is a pile of clothes that don't quite fit!

Here they are dressed in shorts and t-shirts, out to play.

And here they are all dressed up to go out to tea.

I had fun making these, and I'm sure my grandaughter won't mind the mistakes! I can improve on these quite a lot..

I love your dolls they are so cute, I'm sure your grandaughter will forgive you any mistakes because you made them with love just for her.

Adorable. I had been wondering what had happened with the twins. Even thought about sending you a question about them. They are perfect.

Thanks everyone. I made the boy first, and the girl was a big improvement so with a little more practice.......................

I've also made some much better clothes - its been a steep learning curve!
