Model 0130D LAURA - Skirt, Pants, Sweater, Jacket, Hat and Socks
(This pattern fits 17" - 18" dolls like American Girl doll, Baby born and Alexander doll)
Then I have chosen the lilac color once more. I think a lot of you like lilac and together with the white color, my doll Laura looked very good when these clothes were finished.
I have called the model Laura named after my good friends mom! She was a lovely woman and when I grow up, I loved to stay at their house. Many good memories from my childhood there!
At first, I knitted ...
... this wide skirt. Round the waist, it is knitted in garter stitch. It is buttoned together along the back of the skirt with two lilac heart buttons.
To this skirt, my doll Laura needed a sweater/blouse. Therefore, I knitted a little nice sweater in stripes and raglan decreases.
The pants is knitted in stocking sts. It has dbl moss stitch round the waist and are bound round the waist with a chord.
A lovely short jacket knitted wide up to the waist and knitted in dbl moss sts here. It has decreases round the waist and marked round the waist with two white stripes knitted in garter sts. In addition, ...
...the sleeves are knitted in dbl moss sts before knitting the rest of the jacket in stocking sts. I like dbl moss sts very much. Buttoned with heart buttons and the neckband knitted in dbl moss sts and casted off in white the jacket fit my doll Laura very well.
Then I knitted her a hat in white. Nice to wear together with the jacket. I choose to knit the cap in white with a lilac stripe round the edge. I also crocheted strips in chain sts, rolled them to flowers and sewed them to the cap. Eight flowers sewed to the beginning of the increases round the cap.
To make Laura’s clothes complete ...
... I knitted a pair of knee socks. They have a lilac stripe round the ankles and a little flower sewed on this stripe at each side of the flap.
Now you can look at my doll Laura and see how well dressed she is. Ready for a little trip outside.
I hope you too will like these clothes and enjoy knitting them1
