More Hailey Fashions
This is from Lorraine Reid, she sent two pictures of Hailey in two of her new outfits. The first one is  her may outfit andthe second one is  her bridesmaid dress. Lorraine says "Both were really easy to make, I tried to pull the front of the bridesmaid dress up as shown in the pattern but it just didn't look right, I couldn't get it even so I have left it down, but we still think it looks beautiful."

Hi Vicki

Hailey is celebrating the Queens Diamond Jubilee, so I made her a new dress with Union Jack fabric, the pattern is from Hailey's March fashion

Hi Vicki,
Here are three more pictures of my Hailey. I thought maybe, you could pick one to
put on the blog showing off her new nightgown. :)

We're going on a cruise for the next week, so no more sewing until we get back.

Hi Vicky

This is my Hailey in her rain gear (no umbrella yet). I also used the rainboot pattern to make Hailey a pair of matching slippers for her sleepwear, they turned out great.

Hello!! Here is my version of Hailey. Her name is Meggie May. A sweet
girl, a lefty, who loves to knit and loves Rod Stewart and the Zac Brown Band.
She was raised by her grandma, so she knows how to bake like a pro, and loves
chocolate. She has a pet pig, named Piggy, but he is a bit shy, and she is
hoping he will make an appearence soon...we will see...

I LOVE this doll. I love this pattern and the dress was a welcomed
challenge!! so glad i signed up. SERIOUSLY pondering signing up for the new
doll as well. thank you vicki!!!!

Hi, here is 2 new pictures of my
Hailey. Lena Thiel of Sweaden

I loved making Hailey so much, I've made another. They look so different from
each other it's hard to believe she came from the same pattern. This Hailey is
string joined and has yarn hair so totally different to my first. She's also got
a magnetic paci attached. So far she only has a nighty but I will make her a new
robe before the cooler weather here in Australia to keep her all snug and warm.
I can't wait to start on the next instalment of Hailey, My daughter is loving
her just as much as I am.

I received my sleep wear kit at the end of January, I loved the pattern and the fact that I could choose either the pj's or nightgown I decided to make the nightgown but with short sleeves, the instructions were really easy to follow for both the nightgown and robe, I will probably make the pj's too.
The fabric you sent with the kit was perfect for sleepwear.
I do have a question though, would you consider selling the flannel material on your website as I am struggling to buy it in the UK.Here are two pictures of Hailey wearing her nightgown and robe, I decided to make the nightgown with short sleeves from the pj's and added elastic to give
a puff sleeve. lorraine

Comments from the Hailey 50...

The kit was nice fabrics and
trims and the pattern was easy, I actually made the gown from the pieces not
even looking at the CD. I hope to get the robe made this weekend.
Just finished the robe,
it went together for me pretty easy I did put in the CD just to see if
following the instructions would be easier. It was all simple directions to me
Nora Stockman

I have 5 Hailey's made! One is mine
and 4 are for the special little girls in my life!!!! They are sharing the
excitement with me!

I made the PJs. They
were very easy to make and turned out so cute. I am almost done with my Hailey
and will be able to send my pictures. I am so happy i am doing this project. I
can hardly wait for the next kit. Thank you very much for this project that i
am enjoying a lot.

You ask how everyone was coming along with Hailey---- I made mine
using the sew-in limbs and when I make another one and I will I will use the
string method for the arms and the sew-in for the legs. Reason being that my
arms stand out too far from the body. I used the small eyes with a fur wig and
she is adorable. Have pics and will send before long. The robe gave me fits
with the collar facing. Not sure if it is right still, but will make another
one for Hailey #2. My problem was with attaching the facing and doing the top
stitching and getting the collar to turn back and lay right around her neck. I
made the gown and I guess she ate too many cookies because she needed another
velcro strip where the skirt seam is. I added that and all is well. I have been
sewing since I was 6 yr. old ( making doll clothes from my mothers dish
towels-- that did not go well with her !) so that gives me 73 yrs of
experience. I sew on a Bernina 730 and have enjoyed making Hailey and several
of your other dolls. Looking forward to her next dress.

Hi Vicky,
I'm loving the Hailey project, Hailey by far has been the easiest doll to make
for me and the style and size of her limbs made sculpting much easier and a
nicer result.
The PJ's pattern, I have so far made the Nighty and it was a pretty basic
pattern and easy to follow but I did struggle to understand parts of the robe
pattern, especially the extra strip sewn around the opening and neck... (having
a blank as to what it's called). I think I messed that bit up a little but I
got there in the end and she's wearing her robe and all snuggly.
I've loved Hailey so much I made myself another so I have both versions...
It would be great to see more ladies involved in the blog.
Kind regards
Tracy Keans

Hi Vicki,
So far I love
everything you have sent, but unfortunately I haven't even made my doll. I have
had so many things come up that I don't know when I will get to everything. I
do look it all over and think the instructions look easy enough. Sorry I can't
give you more input. Everything is in a box waiting for "free time".
Hopefully this summer I can start getting her together. :)
Hope everyone else
is surpassing your expectations!

Hi Vicki

I received my sleep wear kit at the
end of January, I loved the pattern and the fact that I could choose either the

I decided to make the nightgown but

The fabric you sent with the kit was
perfect for sleepwear.

I do have a question though, would
you consider selling the flannel material on your website as I am struggling to
buy it in the UK.



Just a note to let you
know I am enjoying the Hailey Project. Today I am making 4 additional Hailey's
for the girls in my life. I hope to have at least 3 done by Valentines Day and
the 4th one is going to be a special Tooth Fairy doll for my granddaughter who
is about to lose her first tooth!

I think your patterns
and directions are quite easy to follow. The robe was easy for me because I
have made robes like this for my girls when they were young. Eventually, I hope
to make four more for the little girls I mentioned earlier. I can hardly wait
to see what the February project will be.

Thank you for creating
and sharing Hailey!

"Hailey" Made by Nora Stockman

Here is my Hailey just awaiting her new Pajama's . As for her trunk I decided to do in Zebra and Pink since that's her favorite.
I made my "Hailey" button jointed and she was an easy size to make. I can't wait to see all the wonderful things to come this year.

Naturally curly Redheads run in my husbands family so I thought she fit right in , we have beautiful redhead girls from age one to five. So I think she will make a wonderful surprise for a gift.

Needless to say my daughter is expecting another baby in May my other Granddaughter , Marissa will be 13 on July 3 so it will be an adventure starting over for Haven and her husband. Lots of Dinky babies in my future.

Another "Hailey Doll" Completed

What a face

I just wanted to share my Hailey. Her limbs are sewn in... I'll try jointed another time. She's just gorgeous and I've found this to be one of the easiest patterns yet that I've tried, especially her fingers and toes which I've struggled with in the past. She's being saved up for my daughter as a gift for her birthday in November, I don't know how I'm going to hide her for that long.

The First Hailey Doll Completed!

Stacy Freeman submitted these pictures of her Hailey Doll. She made her doll button joined, and machine embroidered the eyes (she says she cheated). The eyes look great! She also added pink hair. Stacey says she reminds her of a character from Sesame Street. Stacey's Hailey doll is in her daughters bedroom being LOVED right now. Mission accomplished :-)
