This is one of the many reversible pinafores I made when I was pregnant with my daughter. I loved using up all my fabric scraps, and loved the instant gratification of making tiny clothes. She'g going to grow out of them soon, though...  I'm thinking of making a doll to fit in them for when she's bigger - has anyone tried that? does it work?

Those are cute!  I have never made a doll, to fit baby clothes or not.  sounds like a good idea, though!  When she is older, she should have fun dressing and undressing her!

These are so cute.  I love pinafores!  Unfortunately, my son won't wear one (lol).

I've seen tutorials on the web for turning baby onesies into doll onesies, so I'm sure there must be some for doing something similar with dresses.  Nice idea!

Very cute!   Are those metal snaps sewn on?  or pressed on?

Very cute.  I love reversible things for kids. 

I love making baby (now toddler) clothes for the same reasons!  I especially love dresses that become tunics then shirts as dd gets taller.

I remember using mine and my sisters baby clothes to dress our dolls so I don't see why you couldn't make a doll to wear the clothes you made for your baby.  I think I remember that cabbage patch dolls fit the clothes best.

hello - thanks for all your comments, and especially for the tip about cabbage patch dolls - I'll be looking at those for sizing! The metal snaps were pressed on. Since I discovered press on snaps I've almost given up any other sort of fastening, though maybe one day I'll make a button hole again.
