Birthday Help

With this post, I am setting myself up for potential spammers. I'm willing to take the risk. I need some help with my daughters' approaching birthday. They will each be receiving a Bitty Twin (one twin each, not one set of twins) and I want to buy each girl an outfit. But I don't want to pay $24+ per outfit. The dolls are 15-inches. Do you know someone who makes doll clothes for a reasonable price? Have you seen a good sale? Do you already own Bitty Twins or Bitty Babies and have some insight on where to find cheaper clothes than the ones offered by American Girl? Craft shows are out. They tend to happen on Saturdays when I work. As soon as I come home from work, Hubby is on his way to work and I can't do birthday shopping with the girls in tow. Any suggestions are appreciated.

OK - I have my friend's email and phone number, her moms lives with her, but I'd rather send it to you privately. My email is madkatblog@yahoo.com - email me when you can and I can give you the info!

These aren't much cheaper, but very cute and good feedback:

I bought some 18" doll clothes at Michael's once for under $10/outfit. I don't remember seeing anything for 15" dolls, but might be worth looking...

Those dolls look amazing! I'm sure your girls will be very pleased with their gifts. I hope you're able to find some cute little outfits to go with them. I agree, $24+ is just way too much for doll clothes. If I were crafty at all, I'd help you out in a heartbeat!

Hi ... I'm the friend of Rosemarie whose mom amkes doll clothes for the Bitty Twins. You can friend me on facebook and look at the outfits on the photos called 'RoRo's Sewing Room' the bitty twin outfits start @ 10.00 and go up to 12.00. They are well made and in my opinion much nicer than the ones you spend upwards of 25+ for. If you are freinds with her on Facebook, you can see my post on her wall and friend me there.

There are a lot of Laura Flammia's on Facebook and Rosemarie and I aren't FB friends. Can you email me at momofquads@gmail.com so I can figure out how to find you? Thanks!

American Girl may have patterns for the dolls. Since you're buying 5 dolls, why not write and ask for a quantity discount?

check out preemie size baby clothing - fits Bitty perfectly.. especially baby sleeprs and such. I think Walmart carries preemie.

No help with the finding of clothes but I think that it is an amazing gift that you chose for your girls :)
