Tansy Mae is another Waldorf doll with a knit body, knit in the round on dpn's. Her T-shirt and tunic are knit from the same basic pattern, from the neck down. This pattern is easily adaptable for shirts, dresses, tunics, and nightgowns. Currently I'm working on a nightgown with eyelets in the skirt. When I get all the instructions written up, the pattern will be freely available here.
I like the idea of working top down and seamlessly. Thanks to Ravelry for introducing me to this technique :-)
I used fingering weight yarn for the T-shirt, and sport for the tunic and capri's. For some reason, both worked up to the same gauge with size 4 dpn's, about six sts to the inch.
