I cut out all 11 of the doll shirts and skirts…
And then sewed one of the outfits for my daughter’s doll. Cute! The only things missing are the sash and the rebozo (shawl) and the girls will be making those themselves at one of our club meetings.
I think making 18” doll clothes is pretty fun! The dolls are big enough that you aren’t going crazy with things being too tiny, yet, they are small enough that you get things made pretty fast! AND, they can sure make a little girl’s face light up with delight! When I gave this doll outfit to my daughter she immediately went and put it on her doll and then got her own Josefina skirt on and a white shirt (since I haven’t made my daughter’s Josefina shirt yet) and she played all afternoon.
