I was able to test a  new pattern that just came out from Oh Sew Kat her “Halteralls Pattern”.  She had designed her pattern in 3 different sizes for dolls.  For me it was a perfect opportunity to write a small story.  I love short stories and I feel the dolls always have a story to tell. Even as an adult I love to take some time just to relax and dream.  I remember when I was a child carefree all I wanted to do was play with my friends or my brother.   A few of My girlfriends  became like sisters to me. What is a memory you all have?  I bet it will bring a smile to your face.

Abby wanted to go outside and play.  She knew her favorite little Polar bear Sammy would love it.  Off she went to play.


Definitely not Spring yet in Minnesota. Abby was having fun.  Her sister Leah came along with a jacket for her and told her to get back to the house. Sisterly Love!




What do they see in the field?

Just relaxing enjoying each other


Giggling about everything



This pattern was a lot of fun to sew and my models were quite well behaved. I just can never resist taking pictures outside even if it is in the dead of Winter.  The dolls nor I froze. These 2 outfits will be in my Etsy shop later this week. WWW.Etsy.com/shop/AmyViolets.   what a great way to get a jump on Spring with your wardrobe.

Thank you for reading.  I will be back this week with some more sneak peeks of new outfits to be listed soon too with some other tests I have done from some fantastic designers.

Take care  and everyone have a great week.


In closing here is Merida and Elsa in the Halteralls .  Now how fitting is this Merida giving the Ice Princess a popsicle.  Honest I had no idea that was what I was setting the picture up as.  I was trying to think of something for them to do.  A friend on the Net said “Look what’s more perfect”.  It just goes to show you sometimes pictures are just meant to be ……………
