Medieval Dress Dolls' clothes pattern

My 12 year old grandaughter sewed this for her Generation Doll....with some guidance from me. We live in New Zealand and Generation Dolls must be slightly plumper around the waist than the American equivalent. Unfortunately the dress was a little tight for her Generation Doll so we had to add an extra piece at the back, which has worked, and she is pleased with it. She commented during the sewing process on how good the instructions were!! Thanks!

Great! I was abluttle nervous since I don't yet consider myself an 'intermediate' sewer, but it turned out great! Can't wait to make a cloak to finish the look!

Witches dress......

I have used this pattern several times so it was the one I thought of when I was asked to make a Witches dress form my friends granddaughter. I wanted to make and overlay that that looked like cobwebs (I had some cobwebby material but couldn't get the fit right on the sleeves so make it a sleeveless coat. So the coat can be taken off and there is just the dress. Also made a belt using one of the large red bats from the sleep lining. I had the best time with this, just trying different things and everyone loved it. Including the granddaughter. Hat Pattern came from Pixie Faire also Also made the broom....

Medieval magic

This pattern was much easier to make up than I anticipated. Whilst the sleeve insert was fiddly, it wasn't difficult. Excellent.

Medieval Ivy Cape

I was very happy with how the cape turned out, the pattern was easy to follow and plenty of illustrations - yet I couldn't work out the mitered corners (which I'm sure was nothing to do with the instructions, I always have trouble with them) anyway in the end I just folded the edges in and hand stitched it, it turned out quite neat and I'm happy with it, I'm sure my grandchildren won't judge. I'll definitely be making another one.
