I got a new doll "Alexis". The girls are having a Pajama Party.
Alexis finally arrived and she is wonderful well worth the wait. Alexis is the doll (4th from the left)
I purchased her from http://via-e.com. As mentioned in an earlier post I used the pajama pattern
by Lil Abbee - https://www.etsy.com/shop/littleabbee. On the dolls with the robes I made PJ's using
Simplicity pattern #5733, I found a robe pattern from Crabapples that I slightly modified.
You can find the robe pattern here. https://www.etsy.com/shop/mybonbonboutique
The sewing tips for the Lil Abbee PJ's are on an earlier post so I will just discuss the robe pattern.
I made a few modifications. Robe notes: Pockets with the pattern were square. I rounded the bottom edges for a softer look. The pattern called for using bias binding technique as facing for the front opening edges of the robe. I made a front facing pattern by tracing the curve of the front robe piece from the bottom edge to the top shoulder seam and then I made a pattern for the back neckline facing. I also shortened the sleeves 1/4 inch. I was impressed with this pattern there were several different design variations included such as piping and ruffles.
