Kit aka Darly

I wanted to make something special for Povey's best friend's birthday present so I decided to make him a Clothkits doll. They have just recently re-released one of the original 70's doll designs, a boy doll called "Kit". In a classic case of taking on waaaaay too much I only gave myself one evening to sew him and his clothes!

I started at 7.30pm and finished at midnight! I sewed the doll, his trousers, his shirt, his waistcoat, and his bag.

The only thing I didn't manage was his pyjamas so I'll do them at a later date. I want to use them as a pattern to make pyjamas for Papaya and Povey's dolls too. I followed tge original instructions although I must admit I adapted him ever so slightly in that I reduced the size of his scarily Prince Charles-esque ears!

The Best Friend loved his doll and re-christened him "Darly"!

I'm looking forward to making three little pairs of pyjamas, but I think I'll give myself more time for them ;-)
