Bitty Twins Wardrobe

I am so excited to finally share the wardrobe I made for my daughters birthday present, a set of Bitty Twins.

My sister, found these twins for me for an amazing deal. They were band-new, but they didn't have any clothes. The person selling them had bought them only for their outfits. 

At first I wasn't worried about them having their original clothes, as long as they had clothes.  Then the more I watched my daughter stare at their picture in the catalog, I knew she would be expecting them to come as she saw them. 

So I did my best to recreate their "meet" outfits. 
I think I did a pretty good job. I had to make up my own pattern for the shirt, dress, and leggings. I'll be sharing the patterns as soon as I can get them scanned.  

I loved doing the Argyle, 

and the pockets on his jeans. 

Kate's favorite outfits are the Pajamas. Like a good mama, she likes to put her babies to bed. 

I also made some matching rag quilts. It was nice to use up some of my fleece scraps. 

My favorite outfits are their dressy beach clothes. 

The overalls were much easier than I anticipated. 

I love this dress. 

especially the lace. 

Do you remember these outfits? I love them too. You can see how I made the jacket HERE.

Did you notice the shoes?
They were a nightmare to make. I made several pairs before I got it kinda right. I'm going to keep playing around with the pattern and make a few more pairs. 

We are all loving the suitcase I made to store it all in.

If you missed it, you can check out my guest post on how I made it HERE

Oh and in case you were wondering, I used the Simplicity pattern #4268 for most of the clothes.

Realy You make memories fot your dauther.. She tells her children how great it was, with her birthday, what her mom made for her.!

She Looks Like a Mom said...

Those look great! What a special gift for your daughter! My Mom made the clothes for my Samantha American Girl doll. She bought a folder of patterns from the company so that her versions of the typical Samantha clothes came out looking just the same. I'm not sure if it was more cost efficient to make them herself, but I certainly enjoy the extra love that went into my doll's clothes. :-)

Ginger said...

Great gifts! She will no doubt cherish those baby dolls for years to come--and the personalized doll clothes will become the best part of the memory!

Whitney said...

So precious! You're an awesome Mama! And those dolls are such good models! ;)
