I don’t collect dolls, and I don’t have a granddaughter, so I may never make this, but I chose the simplest pattern I saw:

This is the “1904 St.Louis World’s Fair Frock” pattern. It’s made mostly of ribbon. Maybe, someday!

And the dear hearts at Paradise Publications tossed this pattern in for free, as a thank you:

I have been snowed in at my daughter’s house for four days now. Fortunately, Mama is here with me to help watch PJ. The only craft supplies I have with me are in my knitting case.. I had made PJ a cap earlier from Bernat Bamboo yarn, but it was too short. Luckily, I had some more of the yarn and a crochet hook in my case, so I increased the depth of the cap by adding several rows of single crochet.
