Doll clothes during a "down" week!

A week ago I suffered a small MS Exacerbation, which just means I was not feeling very well because of this tight band sensation I sometimes get.  It is called the MS Hug by some but this time I would call it the MS steelband.  An exacerbation is actually anytime MS seems to raise its ugly head and give us a new symptom or return an old one. I could have gone and had IV steroids but I avoid them as much as I can so I spent a lot of time in my husband's recliner crocheting doll clothes.

Here are some of what I made:

I used a pattern I found on called Jumper, for 18" doll and I designed my own blouse but didn't write as a crocheted so no pattern until I make the next one.  

There is another pic of it further down the page.

Hat and coat I made for a doll that I think is a version of Barbie's sister.  No pattern just had a small amount of yarn I wanted to use up.  

another skirt and top I made but unfortunately again I didn't write as I crocheted again.  But the skirt I started with a pattern from but changed up a little.  It is called Ruffled Doll Skirt for 18 inch Doll.  

A skirt and top for same little doll as above so no pattern because I designed as I went.  I wish you could see the ruffle better on the top.  I really like that little bit of extra detail.

These are some I made in the past so they make look familiar to you.

And some more that I made during my weak week.  LOL at myself, is there a name for using two words that sound alike but spelled different?

this is a skirt and top I made.  The close-up of the skirt shows an elastic band I double crocheted around to make the waist.  You may want to make a top that covers the band or tuck a white one into it and it looks like it was meant to be seen.  

I love how this top turned out, again one of those that  started out with a pattern and soon turned into more of my own design.  But I have no idea what pattern I started with. 

Some shoes I crocheted using a pattern called T-Strap Booties, designed by Yvonne Healy, the pattern if for a newborn and I used a fine sport weight yarn, size D hook and only did the pattern to the Upper toe row 4.  If you look close you will see what I do to keep the shoes on the doll.  I weave elastic thread through the top and pull slightly smaller than the circumference of her ankles.  Make sure to use a good tight, nonslip knot to secure and don't clip too close to the knot.

These are boots that I designed.  I have the pattern written in long hand but there is something very similar at called Go Go Boots which is part of Free Eighteen inch Doll Jazzy Winter Outfit.
