Abby is Crayons/Dollygirl's Springfield Doll. Dollygirl is going to do a post on her own blog about Abby's camping adventures; but here's a preview with her new duds. All photos are by Dollygirl.
Pattern notes: The green sun hat, shorts, and top are from Joan Hinds' book Sew the Essential Wardrobe for 18-inch Dolls [link fixed]. We made them from the leftover fabric from one of Dollygirl's sewing class projects. The blue flowered dress is just the top made longer; the fabric is a toddler dress that Dollygirl outgrew a long time ago. The red striped pajamas (and the sleeping bag) are improvised from an old sweatshirt, and the crocheted slippers were made from a pattern I found online. The swimsuit was made from a Cabbage Patch Kid crochet pattern. We also made an African-print shirt which is very cute, but that didn't make it into the photos.
