You’ll also want links to all the relevant tutorials, and here they are:

I hope some of you will have the courage to tackle this project. The outfit is so darling! And it really makes a nice Christmas gift for little girls.

Even if you only try to make a small portion of the outfit, I’d love to see pictures. You can submit a question on this website, and if you give me permission to do so, I will post your photos of the finished outfits you make, on my “Share Your Creations” page, where you could inspire other people to create something like your own project.

  1. Dear Chelly,
    Thank you for posting these patterns. I have a kindle fire tablet and I have problems printing anything from it, do you know of a solution? Love your designs.

    1. Hi Ann,

      In my day job, I’m a school librarian. As such, I can tell you that we librarians specialize in helping people solve these types of technical problems.

      Consider taking your tablet to your public library and approaching a librarian with your question. He/she will likely be happy to help you troubleshoot printing problems.

      Best of luck to you!
