    My favorite era is the 50’s, maybe because I was a little girl then and I think the school dresses were so clean and fresh. My second favorite is the times of damsels! Everybody loves a luxurious gown!

I’ve made costumes, dresses pajamas, you name it! I collect what I make in shoeboxes ang the girls get doll clothes for Christmas. This year, I’m going to work on Victorian era clothes. All little girls should have something elegant for their dolls to wear. Oh! I have a new granddaughter due in April, so I’ll be making baby doll clothes, too!

    My favorite style of fashion (for me) is Mod late1960s Edwardian. I’d like a basic doll pattern that would encompass almost all eras. The pattern would include choices of waist line, style of sleeves and collars. I’d like one doll pattern that could make a medieval, modern or victorian fashion. I’d also like a pattern for underpants. No more bare doll bottoms.
