Crocheted Doll Top and Pedal Pushers

This outfit was made using an adorable pattern by Darsky.
I used worsted weight acrylic yarns in yellow and teal.
The top has velcro closures and a yarn ribbon bow tie at waist; the pedal pushers (or capri's or clam diggers) have an elastic waistband.
This set will fit the Madame Alexander 18" slim bodied dolls. It is a bit tight on AG dolls. The top would fit well, but the clam diggers would be too small. I will adapt the pedal pushers to fit AG as well make several pair as shorts, pants and bell bottoms.
This is featured and available on my website on the doll clothes page. Click image to see a larger version. Custom colors are always welcome!

Handmade Jacket for American Girl Doll

New jacket for 18” dolls like American Girl, Madam Alexander Mia Bella and Tonner dolls.

Short jacket in a sparkly pink swirly print cotton fabric. I fell in love with this fabric. The sparklies were getting all over everything until I washed it twice prior to cutting and sewing. 

There are no closures to pose choking hazards.

For the next one, I plan to lengthen the bottom just a touch.
