Knitted Doll Clothes

For Christmas we got my nieces, Eleanor and Vera, 14" baby dolls. I knitted up some doll clothes to go along with their dolls and will be making more in the future for them.

These were their little packages.

The little hats were frustrating, I had to remake them 4 times. The dolls have so much hair that they hats needed to be so much bigger than the heads.

This is the first sweater I made and I am still working on getting the measurements and structure to the sweaters down.

This sweater vest was so much easier since it didn't involve sleeves! :)

This sweater hasn't been sent out yet.  I love the way this turned out.  I have yet to figure out what type of closures to put on it, if any.

I have definitely enjoyed knitting for the dolls, it is not only a challenge, but a little more immediately gratifying. I will be doing some more in the future. I plan on doing some sewing and crocheting of doll clothes too.
