Clothkits

If there's anyone out there like me, who has yet to graduate from using packs and kits, you might like this site. You might remember it from 20-odd years ago!

I had one of their dolls - Polly - when I was little and she now belongs to my 2 year old.

I bought one for my son that is nearly finished - still have to make most of the clothes.

I'm quite chuffed, considering I haven't sewn on more than a button before! Loads of mistakes - looks very "homemade" (check the legs!) but I'll get better :)

Purple Poncho

Finished - and I've only been working on this for about a year!!


So I tried it on and thought "Mmm, looks quite nice...", and - as usual - my daughter tried it on and looked fabulous. Suits her so much better than me, grrrrr.
