You must post pictures of your girls with their names in this thread as an addition to the written questionnaire.

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to introduce you to Minra (Lounging Lovely) and Doll (Ashton-Drake redhead).  Doll belongs to my 2 yr old (can you tell she named her  Grin) and Minra is mine.  The girls are wearing dresses that I made for their first trip to Disney. (Yes, I got lots of weird looks from onlookers watching me pose them.  Cheesy)  Can't wait to see what everyone is making.  I missed the first round and was drooling over all the goodies.

Have a great day!

These are great links. THANKS!
I used the patterns from puchimadam for the empire and party dresses.  I love her easy to follow instructions!  I also love orrietscat's stuff but haven't made anything there.
Hadn't seen the shoes before. Awesome (can't wait to make some!!)

Those shoes are great! Much more easy than the ones my boyfriend made for me involving special caustic chemicals and whatnot Smiley

Here are some patterns for knit items:

I've made all of these - there's a corrected version of the 3rd one and I could probably email it to anyone who needs it.

Hi ultraviolet!  Thanks for the links--those are so cute that I might try them just to get my knitting skills up to par!! That skirt does not look like it is too difficult for a beginner!

 I already downloaded all of the sewing patterns--so many choices!!

Hooray! I've signed up and will be posting a pic of my doll later.

Are we being matched up based on which type of doll we have? For example, I have a Blythe so it would be difficult to make clothing for a Pullip.

I'm going to try to match up people with the same type of doll (Blythes with Blythes, etc). So far we only have one person with a Pullip, but I hope we get more.

That being said, I do believe that Blythe clothes will fit Pullip dolls and vice versa. Of course, I could be wrong. Does anyone know the definitive answer to this?
