dollies fall clothes

Sometimes I need to make art… ahem, Art.

Sometimes, I need to make the dollies some new clothes. Two pairs of pants, one set of overalls, three shirts and a vest. Still to come – three woolly coats for winter, another couple pairs of hand knitted socks (the dolls and I are the only ones who wear them) and maybe some shoes to keep off the chill. I had plans for sweaters too, but no rush. They don’t really need stuff for snow since they are pretty much indoor kids, but it can get nippy in Alice’s room at night.

I like clothes for dolls because they don’t outgrow them, but I realized that Alice is going to outgrow wanting them soon. I only have a year or two left, and then I become one of those women that makes doll clothes for her own dollies. Yikes.
