Hi there!  I've made up a couple dolls with matching skirts for a couple of my favorite toddlers.  The tutorial that I used is amazing and can be found here: http://www.makeit-loveit.com/2013/02/girl-boy-fabric-dolls-pattern-pieces-included.html

This first doll I made for my cousin's daughter for her 2nd birthday which we celebrated in August.

Her face is painted on, since I am a better painted than an embroiderer.  

I love how versatile her hair is.  She can wear it braided . . .

or in buns, or just left down.  ^_^

The skirt is removable.

And here is the matching toddler skirt to go with the doll.

This next doll was made for a mom friend who I met on a facebook mom group.  Her daughter is 3 days older than my girl. So, I made this for her birthday, which is coming up this week.

This one has a different color scheme and a ruffle instead of a collar.  She also has a few more little details than the first, like a bow on the skirt and buttons on the shoes.

This doll has eyebrows, I'm not sure if I like the doll with or without better.

Here is Baby Bean modeling her friend's skirt and dolly.  ^_^

Thanks for looking!

 That is so cute! And so is Baby Bean. I was just thinking today that I haven't seen any new shoes lately. LOL! These dolls are absolutely adorable. I remember how much I loved matching outfits with my dolls when I was a kid.
