Simple knit jacket for Little Darling Jennifer

Jennifer has a new wig, thanks to my dear friend Tomi :-)  And she is sporting a new dress and knit jacket.  The pattern for the jacket is here:

Little Darling Knit Jacket

This is the simplest of knit pieces, just rectangles for the body of the jacket and the sleeves.  I used a mid weight sport yarn, so it worked up a bit bulky, like a jacket.  Use a slightly finer yarn and this would look more like a sweater.

Her dress is adapted from a crochet Bleuette design; you can find it here:

 I added six rows to the bodice (it is worked side to side) for a better fit, and altered the armhole row accordingly.  The bodice is easy, and the dress makes up quickly with the fabric skirt.

Have a lovely day, and maybe consider making something special on Black Friday, and let the shopping mania pass you by this year :-)


  1. Oh she is so precious!!! And i love her clothes:D

  2. She's wonderful, as is the wardrobe you've made for her (And I'm sure, that you are adding to). Here's the dolls I've worked on this fall, much inspired by your blog:
    These I've sold at craft shows, but I'm making mermaids for my nieces and a Link (from the Prisoner of Zelda video game) doll for my nephew.


  3. EXCELLENT blog! BIG BRAVO for your excellent work!
    Thank you for all your lovely tutorials.
    I can afford to translate into French with a link to your blog and saying they should not be sold or distributed without your permission some of your models.
    Thank you!
    Have a good day
