Patricia is Cosy Indoors – (And I Mutilate a Sock)

18 Feb

Bonjour, mes amies!

Here is Patricia in a lovely outfit from Odile at Passion Poupees specifically designed to keep our lovely little girls cosy indoors.

The only changes I made were to use a 3.5 mm crochet hook (despite Odile’s recommendation of 2.5 mm!) and to add a couple of extra rows here and there to lengthen any part that needed it. I especially made the collar a little longer so that I could turn it down like a polo neck.

The slouch socks are incredibly simple and yet look really cool – there is no shaping in them – yet they look well fitted.

And (… drum roll …) I have finally sewn something for my dolls – admittedly it is hand sewn – still haven’t managed to face my sewing machine (it is lurking in a cupboard reproaching me). Patricia’s leggings are a sock – yes – I managed to cut up and sew a sock to make a cute pair of leggings to go with the lovely jumper and socks.

The yarn used is Stylecraft Life 4 ply in shade 2303 (Oatmeal).

I’m sure you will agree that Patricia will not feel the cold indoors in this outfit.

Passez une bonne journée, à bientôt …

    Well it was well worth having a go at sewing because the result is stunning. I love the socks and the jumper which is one of my favourite models by Odile.
