McCalls 7441, Helen Lee pattern

My taste in children's clothes, and therefore doll's clothes because I like to dress my dolls the way I dressed my children, tends towards the unfussy.
I'm not a frilly kind of person and perhaps it started when I was a child because mum dressed us in beautiful unfussy clothes mostly made by her and mostly with understated trimmings.

Here are some of the patterns from my childhood,each and every one I think would be perfect for doll clothes

  1. Great memories....I think my Mum owned many of those patterns. I clearly remember my Mum making me a beach dress from terry toweling with a zipper up the front and a big ring at the top of the zip!

    1. Ha ha, my sister and I both had dresses like that but our auntie made them for us not mum.

  2. Love those styles and the pattern prices.
