One of the blogs I
stalk frequently visit, is Tea Rose Home where Sachiko always has some wonderfully creative hand crafted clothing for you to see and make.
Her latest creations were doll clothes she made for her little girl. That brought back memories for me of the clothes I used to make for my daughter and her “MyTwinn” doll when she was little.
Now, as she gets ready to set off for college (her sophomore year), I decided to dig out the outfits (mostly made for either Halloween of for the summer of 2000.
The first creations for Samantha and her “My Twinn” were really ambitious for fist trials…She was a fan of “Rose” from “Titanic”, so naturally I had to make the “jump” dress for her. I used a store bought adult pattern, scaled down for Samantha’s dress, then reduced and reduced and reduced the pattern pieces again and again for her doll.

Alas, she is long past playing with dolls, and I am experiencing mixed emotions. for she is a beautiful young woman, who has worked hard against the many obstacles that have been placed in her way.
