This first dress was knit in the round so the back doesn't open (where you'd normally put something like velcro or a snap). This looks great, but it made dressing little Blythe and Pullip difficult because their arms stick out at an angle and don't simply move straight up and down like Kelly dolls. Squeezing the tiny arms made me worried they'd pop off the body, so lollipop girl will keep this dress, which she's quite happy about. I didn't plan for it to match her face up and accessories so perfectly, that was serendipity.
A halter style dress would work better for LPS Blythe. Her head pops off easily so I can remove the head, slide her body into the dress, pull the halter strap over her headless neck, and then put the head back on. No snap or Velcro required and no danger of breaking Blythe's arm just to get her in a dress.

Déjà vuYou might have seen the following photos before, when I first posted them in March. Little Pullip and LPS Blythe are wearing the first doll dress I knit, which swims a bit on the petites but fits Barbie's sister Kelly correctly -- which makes sense as the pattern was written for Kelly. The Kelly (or Shelly, as she's known in Europe) dress pattern is #645 from "Sticka till Barbie," a Swedish website with hundreds of free knitting patterns for fashion dolls... and Monchichi, in case you have a monkey in need of clothes.
