Dora's Wardrobe So Far
Posted 19 September 2007 - 08:55 AM
She arrived Thursday night and I was given the doll first thing on Friday Morning.
I showed her some of Darski's patterns that I had saved - she started to put in her order straight away.
First thing each morning she wanted to Know what Aunty Di had made overnight.
What a slave driver!!
Well, here goes - now that Darski has given me some idea of what to do with photo bucket I am going to try and post the pictures here for everyone to see my version of Darski's patterns.
P.S. Darski - don't think that I will show Tilomai your new outfit - maybe make it up for Santa to bring.

Green Shorts and Top
Pink Dress and Hat

I hope that this works as I am no computer genius. Cross fingers and hope that this works.
Please let me know.

I've been making some outfits too, but I don't have a doll yet. Darski makes the cutest stuff!

The Dora doll is 15 inches but she is an unusual sizing. She has a HUGE head. I had a few mistakes with Hook sizing etc.. being in Australia and with wool ply but the smaller ones fit other dolls that my other nieces have - so it doesn't really matter.
They are all a-DORA-ble !
What size is your Dora doll?

Not Grandma - Aunty.
very awesome...what a fabulous grandma!
My Mum is her Grandma and lives right next door to me.
Thanks for the praise.
I don't get that much - having teenage boys they think that I am just plain CRAZY!!

The dressing gown is a little bit big and actually fits the girls Cabbage Patch dolls as well, so they may be fighting over it.
I'm so glad to see Dora out of those clothes she's wears all the time! These are too cute and so well done. I also love the dressing gown and the cheerleader.
Maybe over the next couple of nights I will try and make a couple of pairs of shoes to go with the outfits- haven't tried yet. But Tilly is insisting that they need some!!!
I am so glad that every one seems to like them. And I learnt something new from Darski with posting the pictures on Photobucket as well!
I really love this woman!! She has made me the most popular Aunty in the World.
She really is a slave driver, considering that she has only been here A WEEK!!

I love what you did and your special pink dress is just too precious.
This gets you 5 of my favourite smilies...
Just because you have made me smile all over.
When in doubt... make a hat. And feel free to *pin* me.
