16 Inch Baby Doll Sunny Days

I have a date now for the donation drop off. The dolls will be headed out at the beginninng of December so I'm finishing up what I can before the date and anything that doesn't make the cut will go towards next year's donation.

This is another of Darski's free patterns Sunny Days found here. The shoes are taken from her Peachy Keen set found here.

I did add some rows to the dress this year as it seemed short using the combination of Red Heart Super Saver Yarn, Bright Yellow and White with the suggested hook. I also added an additional finish row on the button hole side as the back was just a little tight. I think when I make this again I'd think about a larger hook for the top and a smaller than suggested hook for the skirt as it gets a bit wide. I'd rather add rows for length than have it get too wide. I also added trim to the arms. I just liked the look.

I posted Friday that I'm still looking for deals before purchasing next year's Barbie dolls, a 14 inch Lots to Love Baby Doll, and the JC Toys - 16-inch Baby Dolls. I did find a good deal for the 18 inch Our Generation dolls for the 2022 donation so those are off my list. I'm pleased to have done this well this early.
