    Love your site. I’m altering your Summer Dress for my 24 inch antique doll. She has jointed arms and legs and need new clothes, so this seems to be the perfect site. I’ve made the bodice and it seems to fit her, just a few adjustments to be done to the pattern. I’m interested in the cute halter top you made for your cabbage patch doll, I think my Anna Doll would look great in it. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you,

    • Glad you found my site Dorothy. I’d love to see a photo and hear what adjustments you had to make to my summer dress pattern to get it to fit your 24 inch antique doll. The halter top really is an easy one to adjust, depending on how big her chest is and how much bigger she is around the body. You may not have to alter the front at all and just add a little to the length of the back to get it to fit around her. If you do need to make the front bigger to cover her chest, you can either use your printer to enlarge the pattern or simply draw around it, adding the additional amount you feel it needs. Again, I’d love to hear how you go with this one. Happy sewing :)
