Finished!

And just in the nick of time! Our little friend is on her way over! I think they turned out so cute. The doll was pretty easy though the hair took a little extra thought. I love how the hair turned out and it is yummy yummy yarn so it feels nice and soft. I will surely make more of these skirts- it took less than a half an hour. The fabric I bought for about $3 a yard and I think it is such a darling print. Nor much else to say except that this weekend we will continue with the other side of the yard and I am hoping to cast on a halter top for M out of the blue yarn Iused for the doll's hair. Have a great weekend! Pirates of the Caribean comes out this weekend- I am so excited to see it!

Oh my goodness. Will you be my mommy? Not that I don't have a great one. But she doesn't sew.

Divinely cute. When will you start selling them on Froy & Olo for those less talented than you (aka me?).

That fabric is terrific. Such a wonderful skirt and dolly!! You will love Pirates... my kids and I saw it this evening. One word of advice... get there early if you want a decent seat!!

Love the doll! and it's so cute as a set with the skirt. Good fabric find! Where did you get the pattern? I know a little miss that would like a set for herself... and a niece that has a birthday coming.
