More About Margie In Her Own Words: "I have always had a love of sewing and have been fascinated with manipulating fabric since being taught by my gran at around the age of 7. In more recent years, besides general sewing, I have made and taught quilting. My love of dolls was put on hold for many years until three years ago when I happened upon aleksandrajones’s site and fell in love with all the outfits and beautiful dolls. Living in South Africa, good quality dolls are not readily available, but a month after venturing into the doll world, my son surprised me with my beautiful AG Julie and with much encouragement from him, my late husband and awesome friends, I started designing dolls’ clothes. I have finally found my niche and love every minute of it."

Kentucky Blue 18" Doll Clothes Pattern - This beautiful versatile outfit comprises a skirt, corset-style top, faux sleeves and a lacy vest. The skirt has a lined Basque with an elasticized waist and tiny belt loops to carry a pretty ribbon; the body of the gathered skirt is topped with an outer petticoat of four layers of lace and gathered Tulle softens the hem edge. The corset-style top is lined, closes with hook and loop tape in back and has a button placket down Center Front with optional gathered lace inserts. A layer of gathered lace edges the top of the corset to soften the top-stitching. The little pull-on sleeves are gathered at both the top and cuff, edged in lace and have pretty bows to finish. The vest is an oval of heritage lace edged in bias trim. The armholes have facings rather than bias trim for ease of stitching. There is a small hook and loop tape strip at Centre Front for closure which is covered with a tiny bow.
