My sister-in-law dug up this doll at her mom's house. It was Norma's as a child. Norma has two small granddaughters, but since there was only one doll and I only have one granddaughter, she gave the doll to me to give to Gracie.
The only thing was the poor thing was basically naked! I was contemplating what kind of clothes to design for the doll (she's about 10 inches tall), when I found this retro pattern:
So I started cutting! So far, a dress, panties, slip, nightgown, and a coat. I also found in my mom's things a bed doll dress that she had started, so I am adapting and finishing that as well. This will be a three-way Christmas gift-from Gramma, Auntie Norma, and Great-Gramma Pat. Something to remember us all by.
