Clowning Around 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

As of today, I haven't received the actual pattern in the mail. I was able to download it, but I have yet to receive the actual pattern.

Postively adorable

This clown outfit is so cute. A little mind boggling around the arms for me, but figured it out finally. The clown outfit fit great and the colors I chose was exactly what this pattern needed. All instructions were very helpful. Thanks to all the people who make these patterns. Betty
