    Thank you! It was fun sewing for a different doll for a change.

    Lovely work Peggy and Pam, I like both outfits and the colour of the fabrics used.

    I think discussions can be closed for comments, so greyed out on the forum page, but you can still open them and look at the posts. The sisters forum has been closed but we can still look at it. I can see what Maxine thinks… as she would be the one to combine the threads or shut one and open a new one.

    Interesting. I haven’t seen my friend dressing her. So far, she just stands her dolls up and looks at them. I’m trying to keep all my dolls in the same size range, so I can pose them together. Guess I’m into realism.

    I thought of that. It would avoid people like me posting both places. I’m not sure if that would make the discussion too unwieldy, because it would include everything. Is there a way to archive a discussion when you start a new one? It would be good if people could go back and look at the lovely clothes and dolls for inspiration.

    She’s definitely a bit different, but her joints are terrible! UK ebay have had them for over a year really cheap! So a lot of people have been getting Matilda over here.

    Don’t worry Peggy! I actually was wondering what everyone thought of combining the sewing and knitting forum to just be a homemade forum which would then include both sewing and knitting! I wasn’t sure whether people would like that or not. I would be happy to combine the forums as I often knit a cardigan and put it with a dress so then I don’t know where best to show it. I would be interested in what you think.
    Ah! it was orange! I should have guessed. Thanks!

    Oops! I forgot (right after mentioning it) that this was the sewing forum. I’ll repeat my comments about knitting the sleeve in knitting. If I could figure out how to edit that part, I would.

    You did a beautiful job…but then you always do. She looks lovely! One of my Frog Prince co-moderators went to Pixie Faire for a free pattern and ended up with Matilda. She’s so exotic!

    Yes, it was looking for the cardigans that led me to this forum. In light of our recent discussion, I’m trying to remind myself to keep posts in the correct discussion.
    The yarn is Palette in “Orange,” believe it or not.
    The pattern is the Mirabella again, but this time I picked up 32 stitches around the armhole and knitted down in the round, decreasing every third round until I had 24, then even for 30 rounds. Then, starting with a P row, I started working back and forth (flat) to make the lace cuff as directed in the pattern. That way, I avoided setting in the sleeves. I think it looks pretty much the same as the original.
