My DD got an American Girl doll for Christmas and while she told me she did not want any crochet for her doll, I ignored her and made Lanie some PJs. I think they are adorable. Slippers will be coming shortly!
I orignallly tried to noodle through this PJ pattern and was totally stumped by the pants. Then I found another pattern by the same poster and I think she just did a lot of shorthand on that last pattern, so this one had more detail and made more sense to me. I missed a row on the pants, so i added the ruffle at the bottom for length and kind of messed up the shirt a bit, because my stitch counts were way off, so I added a row of picot at the top for kicks and giggles. I used this heart for the applique, but the yarn coloring makes it look kind of like a plum. Still cute.
Lanie was spending the night at Gramma's house so I was hoping it would fit when she returned this morning. It does! It's a bit snug, but my daughter is happy and in the end, that's all that matters. Score 1 for the mom!
