I started this American Girl doll sweater thinking that it would be a long sleeved cardigan with buttons down the front. However, as I was working on it my daughter asked me if I could make it short sleeved. Then, I realized that the back portion was not quite as wide as I would have liked, so my plans all changed. I ended up with this spring or fall short sleeved sweater with a small button to keep it closed.
Tonight I plan to make another one to add to my Handmade American Girl Doll Clothes section of my Artfire Studio. Then, hopefully, I will get back to my idea of a button down cardigan sweater. Once I get that accomplished, I will begin the process of getting the patterns for my 18 inch doll sweaters ready for testing.
Sometimes What You Start to Create Turns Into Something Else
