    Can you give us a link to the posting for the patterns? I've searched and can't find them. Thanks.

    Planning to make some Barbie clothes for the granddaughters. I sure hope I can sew those little things. Buying them is so pricey.

    Thank you so much for this! It is just what I needed! Quilters are the best.

    0I made clothes for the AG and Bitty dolls for 10 years and they are like potato chips=cant have just one! Simplicity and McCalls have all kinds of patterns and I have all of them! Have just finished making matching Dorothy from Wizard of OZ for a friends GD's for the holidays. I even have the ruby red shoes for them.

    Ahhhhhh.....I must have been really, really tired when I did the first outfit. Gee, what fabric comes to mind when you see 'leotard'......guessed what was wrong? I used cotton for the leotard instead of STRETCH KNIT....no wonder it didn't fit. And since that was the first that I made, I was very eager to get started, I never checked the other patterns. Well, they do fit. I have made a dress and bolero jacket, denin skirt and tiger stripe shirt and have a pink party dress cut out. Would post pics, but I am stupid in that area on the new set up as well. Working 6am to 11pm probably isn't helping either.

    Great stuff. Do you remember where you got the pattern for the red dress?
