So, sew... (someone, stop me).
Anyway, I had a lovely time sewing doll clothes this weekend. Patterns for 18" dolls are smaller, but otherwise exactly the same as for full-size human clothes. It took me a little while to get back into the rhythm of sew, clip, trim, and turn, but it came back. My granddaugter loved watching the 0utfits come together, and was totally enchanted with the jammies and hooded bathrobe. Okay, I'll be honest- I was enchanted too. These outfits are beyond cute, and the details are pretty amazing (fully lined coat, hooded bathrobe, ruffled jammies, fold up cuffs on the jacket, an actual fly-placket on the skirt). And the clothes all fit her doll perfectly.
I bought more fabric (and ordered a couple of books, including a set of knitting patterns for 18" dolls) so I'll be sewing more (we have birthdays coming up in March and April), but not next week- next week I MUST work on my book proposal. Not only do I have to work on it, I have to finish it. So don't be surprised if I am quieter than usual. Oh wait, American Idol starts on Tuesday (!)- I'll be yakkier than ever. Nevermind (ah, there's my Gilda Radner joke).
