I’ve had a good number of requests for an expansion pack of basic doll clothes — like t-shirts, button down shirts, pants, etc. The sort of clothing the average person might wear, rather than weird fantasy or silly stuff I am so fond of making 😂 Some of these basic … Continue reading New Shop Pattern!
