For Amy’s birthday I’ve been making some clothes for her doll, Rachel. I thought I’d make something with a zipper, something with big buttons, and something with snaps, since the clothes she came with use velcro.
I have no idea how many months or years it will be before she actually wants to put clothes on Rachel, and the ones I made have not turned out to be very easy to put on (drat) but I’m almost done and I might as well give them to her now.
The first items were a toddler-size sling and a flannel sleeper. The latest additions are a long dress and a wrap top with jeans. The jeans actually have a fly (just a snap, no zipper) and the wrap top snaps on the outside and velcros on the inside — I thought the inside fastening should be simple since it has to be done just by touch.
The last thing will be a few flannel velcro diapers and maybe some extra underwear. Maybe shoes or slippers if I have time.
