    thanks for the non-english patterns. although I can’t read the directions, I’ve sewn many outfits and hope I can muddle through. the Danish ‘royal clothing’ dress looks complicated but do-able.

    I’m very glad you’ve listed the molendrix pattern page and I hope many others will use them. I’ve taken those patterns apart and re-assembled them into so many different outfits! just remember to add seam allownces. I always make them just a little larger anyway so I can custom tailor each outfit to a specific doll.

    I haven’t been able lately to do any sewing because I was just diagnosed with macular degeneration and cataracts, and the cataracts make sewing small things very difficult. I hope I can have surgery in the near future, so I am still collecting patterns!

    I contue to hope that someone will put up a good dress shirt/jacket pattern and tutorial for slightly larger dolls like GI Joe. I got a good Ken shirt from Niel’s doll room a couple of years ago, but apparently he’s taken down the website and now has a mini-figure blog. I’m really sorry he didn’t continue with his great tutorials on making shoes/boots and clothing. a very talented guy.

    anyway, thanks again for your time and effort in finding all these great sites. and, please, if you find any place that translates into english could you mention that as well?
