Doll Crafting





Often the easiest and most entertaining way to sew Regency apparel is for a doll. Whether you prefer 11 1/2", 18", or like myself, 22" dolls, there are numerous materials and patterns available.

Here I have divided each section up by Doll style. Under each listing you will find patterns and links to use as resources for your crafting pleasure.
