I am delighted that Keepers Dolly Duds has been adding new patterns lately.
I haven't gotten the new 1950s Circle Swirl Dress yet.
I did get the delightful 1930s Playsuit.
It is different from the playsuit AG made for Kit, which is a good thing if you want Kit to have a diverse collection.
I am a sucker for sailor collars. Also Peter Pan collars.
I have some younger cousins who have Kit and Ruthie, so I was excited to make this pattern for them.
I made the first one in purple and blue.
I know this is a rotten picture, but you can at least see the playsuit clearly.
I altered the pattern slightly to not use elastic at the sleeves.
I don't have any one hand and the thing is that elastic goes bad eventually.
Next I made this playsuit in red, white and blue. This one is my favorite of the two.
I hope that my cousins enjoy these!
I am going to make a blue and white playsuit, gather the shorts at the bottom, and call it a Victorian swimsuit for Samantha. It will be for another cousin, who has Samantha.
I think it will be close enough to Samantha's Bathing Costume for play purposes. I can make an over skirt as well.
This pattern is slightly similar to the 1960s Gym Suit made by Wren Feathers, with a different collar and sleeves, if you are looking for a free alternative.
Here is a link to my blog post when I made that pattern.
