Great Doll, Fun to Sew For

We have 2 dolls of this style that are played with regularly while our 18" fancy plastic doll is ignored. We've enjoyed sewing lots of historical and contemporary outfits for this size doll (about 15" - varies slightly for each doll) using standard 18" doll patterns that I resize by photocopying at 70% - fits doll very well with just a little adjustment to snaps/velcro and length. This even works for patterns for shoes/boots. We've also raided that plastic doll's closet and many of her longer tops and shorter dresses work just fine, and her accessories and tights/socks are an appropriate size as well.
