“I have made dresses from the big book companies and they can be difficult and not fit. This was the easiest thing to make and instructions were outstanding. I just wish she made the pattern for 6 month to 7 year olds.
WOW! Now you can create boutique-inspired ensembles for your dolls! This volume is the first in a series of pattern and instruction eBooks created by CarlaC Dolly Designs! Volume I includes

I have made dresses from the big book companies and they can be difficult and not fit. This was the easiest thing to make and instructions were outstanding. I just wish she made the pattern for 6 month to 7 year olds.
These instructions and patterns are very easy and very clear on how to make them and what the items should look like. I love all of her ebooks.
I made the top and pants outfit and it came out so cute! Carla's instructions are very easy to follow and even beginners would enjoy and be able to create beautiful doll clothes from these patterns.
It was so fun to make. The instructions were very clear. I am now on my second one. Thank you for such a great website!
