Attempt #1--Betsy McCall View E Skirt & Top

Attempt #1--Betsy McCall View E Skirt & Top
My New Year's Dolly Resolution is to try new patterns--since I have so many, (I can't seem to help myself) I really need to put them to use.

My Tiny Betsy McCall (8 inch) has only two outfits--so I wanted to see if this McCall's Pattern was any good. It does say "Slim Girl Doll's Wardrobe. Fits Betsy McCall Doll & Others" on the front. It's by McCall, made for Betsy--part of the McCall family. It should work, right?

I don't expect it to fit perfectly because Betsy is a little girl and a less-than-form-fitting outfit is the norm for a child. I just don't want her to be swimming in it.

This is so cute. Of course I can see all of these on my Tutti lol

It's hard to tell if it will fit. When I do sew I usually make a paper pattern first and fit it to the doll and then I can adjust the size on my printer if I need to, to get it just right. I had to do that with a Skipper pattern. Originally it was too big even though it was marketed for her.
