Asymmetrical Leggings Pattern and American Girl Pattern

New pattern in the shop! A favorite from the clothing line so I’ve added it to the pattern line: The Asymmetrical Leggings…..and even added a miniature pattern for the American Girl style dolls.

Pattern can be sewn with regular sewing machine or a serger.  Any stretchy cotton/lycra/spandex blend works great as well as stretchy ribbed cotton like the kind used in tank tops.

Boo Style (for Dolly)

It’s sad when your child’s doll has more clothing than you do.

We love the tiny handmade clothes by The Melamoose Company and Apple Tree House.

Boo started putting them on a large garment rack until she ran out of hangers. They looked so cute I couldn’t resist a photo:
