For most of the time when I was a little girl, actually up until I reached double figures just about everything I wore apart from my underwear was made by my mum. Same for my sister and mum made most of her own clothes too. Not sure about my brother because I didn't take much notice of him. He was older and always seemed to give the impression that he thought girls were stupid. My sister and I on the other hand were thick as thieves.
Keeping two little girls in clothes, knitted and sewn, was something mum said she really enjoyed and it wasn't something that got shared on social media just seen in person by family and friends and school friends and such. Not so much sharing with strangers way back then.
As children we didn't get any input into what she made, it was her creative outlet and she had good taste. Probably quite sensible too as I know the things my children had the most input in to were the things they never really wore or even liked once they were made. Perhaps the finished product just never quite matched up to the image they had in their heads.
Our clothes were never fussy, quite classic lines, not many frills or lace except on special dresses. Mum didn't like the labour involved in the making or upkeep of frills and really if you are making something for a child to wear for everyday play and life, everyday washing and ironing I can understand the lack of frills.
I am pretty sure I follow a similar strategy with my doll clothes, classic comfortable designs just right for play, reading books, running jumping, climbing, tea parties, dolly hospitals, schools ( we used to play schools and libraries soooo much).
I have lots of dolls to get dressed, the knitting is time consuming but worthwhile, the sewing is fun but I always procrastinate. I'll get there though, all in good time.
