I have been looking at all the patterns for 11 1/2" fashion doll clothes using size 10 crochet thread. Are these beautiful gowns complicated to make? I have two dolls that need clothes and want to try this, maybe a wedding dress, or a Victorian gown. It might be fun to try something other than sweaters, for a change. BTW, how does one make a doll stand? The purchased ones do not work very well.
