Every doll needs pretty summery pyjamas. This design, by Marinda Creations, is a knitting pattern which includes instructions to create a pair of short pyjamas (sleeveless top with a lacey collar) and 3/4 shorts. There is a lacey stitch on the hem of the shorts, top and collar. Construction of the top: The top is knitted flat from hem upwards in one piece and separated at the armholes, then each section (left front, back and right front) are knitted separately. There is a front closure with 3 buttons. The pants: Starting with both legs then joined together to create the crotch and upper part of the pants. There are eyelet rows at the waist band and also at the end of the lacey pattern rows on the pants. You can either insert an I-cord or a ribbon. Accessories: The pattern also includes a hair tie and instructions how to make a pair of slippers using foam craft as soles and a knitted ruffle on the top part.

I enjoyed test knitting this pattern. My gauge came out just right with the DK yarn I usually buy. The directions were very easy to understand and all the pictures made everything clear. The accessories of the hairband and slippers completed the outfit. Nice pattern!
I enjoyed testing this cute pattern. The lace work is easy to follow but looks intricate on the pattern and the sections of stocking stitch allow you to finish the pattern quickly and easily. The headband and shoes are pretty additions to this pattern. I was not experienced in making shoes but found the directions easy to follow and my shoes turned out well. It was a good fit for my doll and I thought the style was modern and up to date.
