I recently purchased and made

I recently purchased and made 3 of the Weekend in Paris Capelet for 18" dolls, a KeLibu pattern. Because of time limitations I decided to use the beginner option and was able to produce 3 very cute capelets for each of my granddaughter's My Generation dolls. The instructions were detailed and easy to follow and the capelets went together very nicely. I modified the pattern slightly by stitching the front of the cape from the bottom about half way up. This made it easier to put on the doll for my 5, 7, and 8 year old granddaughters. The next time I make this capelet, I plan on adding a little length to bottom and giving it just a little bit more width. I think these dolls must be fatter than the AG dolls are and with all that hair the capelet seems to be tight. All in all I found this to be a well written pattern and would purchase patterns from this designer again. I am an experienced quilter but have not had much experience with making doll clothes as I raised boys. This has been a fun if not challenging experience to sew for dolls!

Quick, easy pattern

I tested this pattern using the easy pattern with a collar and it works up very quickly. The pattern is very clear and would be a perfect for someone new to sewing. Pair it with the beret pattern and you have perfect and simple outerwear for your doll.
