We’re starting off with an adorable Dorothy outfit that Chris made from my Pinafore Dress and Blouse patterns and it is being modelled on her very own hand made doll. Just look at the gorgeous big blue eyes on Dorothy and Chris has even made a little basket for Toto….super cute! The doll is a limited edition Thelma Resch doll that Chris bought about 10 years ago as a face, hands and legs in vinyl. Chris now makes rag dolls and has an Australian Etsy shop Krizco, if you want to see some more of her work.Read More

Since American Girl came out with the new 14 ½” Wellie Wishers doll, I’ve had many people asking if I will be doing patterns to fit them. So I thought I had better get myself one so that I could do a little experimenting. Ashlyn finally arrived and around about the same time, I started a Facebook group, Rosie’s Doll Clothes Sew and Share. One of the first people to join this group was Ann Mellor who has done my How to Sew Doll Clothes video course and been a wonderful customer since my very first year. Ann posted some gorgeous photos of Hearts 4 Hearts and Wellie Wishers dolls wearing clothes that she had made after resizing some of my patterns. So immediately ……Read More
