Thank you all for your lovely comments.  Abby my grandaughter loves her very much.

beth8144, it's a great tut makes a lovely wig, as far as the Dora patterns go, they are really nice and so easy to follow, I love Darski's patterns.

I was in a bit of a hurry when I was making her wardrobe, but I'm pretty sure the yellow Jammie's are straight off the pattern. I used the top part of the Jammie pattern for the orange top, I made the bodice a bit longer, and it flared out nicely with the same shell stitch as the Jammie's, then I edged it with picot stitch.

Pretty sure for the skirt I just read through Darski's pattern, and as dolly has a little chubby belly, I had to add more stitches to the first round over the elastic to make it fit, and I just winged it from there.   

Hope that helps

Never argue with a stupid person.
First they'll drag you down to their level, then they'll beat you with experience.

Teamwork...... means never having to take all the blame yourself.
