So many of you have requested specific patterns for quite a few of the photo outfits. These outfits were created without a pattern, knit from the neck down and decisions made as I went along.
Maybe I should take the time to write up a pattern to match each photo and put it in a booklet - per the request of some of you knitters.

Here are more "off the top of my head designs" - no patterns....yet.

Photo 1: This is an outrageous pair of P.J.'s for a slumber party. I wanted to try a multi striped blue yarn and made a simple top, then trimmed it in more of the terrific soft furry yarn. It looked stupid when completed, so I added a pair of short pants, also trimmed in the fur yarn. Almost tossed the two pieces out. Had a sudden idea to add a ridiculous pair of furry, fuzzy slippers - and the slumber party outfit was born!
Photo 2: If you check out the boots you'll see one missing. I ran out of that lovely "Lamb" color and had to order another ball from Herschenner's. The second boot is now complete.
Photo 3: I had some very fine yarn that was scattered with many, many sequins. I had a ball in white, one in black, and one in varigated white, gray and black. Used the varigated on to make a basic sleeveless dress with full skirt. The yarn made a black and white striped pattern with some gray thrown in. When I put it on the doll, it looked too "adult" for her. So (light bulb went on over my head......) I giggled and knit a soft red furry boa that I wrapped around her throat and let the ends dangle down. Then completed a furry red headband. Can't you just see her at the school auditorium on the stage, prancing around and mouthing the words to "That Old Black Magic"?!

I didn't notice the missing boot until you pointed it out. That was funny.

I am sure the knitting companies would love you as a designer. Your work is outstanding. It has the Oh! factor. I love looking to see what you have done

The outfits are sooo cute! Wish I had time to make some for my Chatty Cathy doll, but too busy now with real baby clothes.
