  This is the pattern I used to make the zipper-front ski jacket that I posted yesterday. It fits a lot of different fashion dolls, including Barbie and Tammy dolls. (The sleeves turned out a bit long for Barbie, so you might want to trim the pattern up by about a half a centimeter.)

#Children Say #Thanks in the Sweetest Way!

The Swedish traditional costume that I featured on ChellyWood.com in October and November was made for a friend’s little girl, Delia, and although I certainly didn’t expect anything in return, she made me this lovely picture to say thanks in the sweetest way: Incidentally, Delia’s dad is a fantastic, freelance book editor.
