New clothes for the dolls

I've been thinking about sewing doll's clothes for ages... so when I had a piece of a fleece blanket left over from a previous project, I thought that would make some nice clothing for Maja's dolls. I liked the edge on the blanket and wanted to use it for something... It was perfect for the bottom of a doll's coat....
I saw a nice doll's coat in a book and wanted to make something similar, but the pattern for that particular coat was too small for any of the dolls we have. So I altered a pattern for a doll's shirt that I found in another book, and made this coat. It even has a wee collar...
I didn't have any Velcro for closing the coat, so until I get some, I've just used some pins....

After making the coat, I still had some fleece left, so I made a little outfit for another doll as well...
This little suit has a zipper and a hood... I found the pattern for this outfit in "Sy dukkeklær" by Anne Grethe Gaaserud.
Maja was very pleased with her dolls' new clothes.

Så fine dukkeklærne ble. Så mye arbeide i så små klær.Tenker Maja ble glad for disse. Kanskje hun blir glad i å leke med store dukker hvis de får noe å ha på seg.
Jeg fant noen gamle strikkemønster til dukkeklær.Beregnet til dukkehøyde 28-37 og 45.Skal jeg sende dem.
I dag er det lat dag hos oss.
Klem.

What a wonderful and creative idea for your fleece leftovers. I'm sure Maja will have hours of fun with them.

The cut work edging on the coat is so beautiful.
