To make today’s little shirt and jeans, you’ll want some lightweight denim and cotton fabrics, 1/8 inch elastic, and size 3/0 snaps.
I think this is just a perfect little springtime outfit! And of course you can have different looks with different fabrics — try white trousers with a pink floral shirt, for example. How cute would that be?
And did you notice that my Sheryl Rainbow High doll is wearing a pair of handmade Mary Jane shoes? I’ve included a link to the page where you can find the pattern and the tutorial video for making the shoes, in the second set of bullets below.
Happy spring sewing for those of you in the northern hemisphere, and happy fall sewing, for those of you in the southern part of our planet!
