Happy Accident

A while ago I posted a baby ballet sweater for the midgauge machine. It can be found here in case you missed it:   I like to use this pattern for charity baby sweaters because they go really fast and are so easy.  Friend Rita doesn't have a midgauge machine so she used the stitch and row counts of the midgauge pattern on a standard machine and it came out perfect for an 18" doll!  Here are pictures of it.

She added a sweater underneath and a frilly skirt.  I thought it was adorable and was amazed that it fit the doll! 

And, here's what she said about it:
I thought readers might be interested in this happy accident since there's as lot of interest in making doll clothes.  Thanks for sharing, Rita!
