Lilly doll is wearing a sweet nightgown with a simple lace edging (The lace/picot edge is knitted as you cast off) she has lacey knickers, whilst May has plain underwear.

May loves her pyjama set with contrast trim and both girls love to snuggle up in a cosy dressing gown and slippers. May prefers the plain slippers but Lilly loves her pink Bunny version.

Their knitted hair with co-ordinated hair bows is very simple to do, and of course it will never become untidy!

Both the dolls and their clothes are knitted flat on standard straight needles and seamed. Basic stitches are uses throughout for the dolls, which are knitted from the head down, the arms and hair are knitted and sewn on later.

This pattern includes the dolls, nightdress, pyjamas, dressing gown and slippers.
