Pattern Roundup for Isabelle - 2014 GOTY

I have been purchasing patterns and pinning items for crafts and handmade items for Isabelle - American Girl Doll of the Year 2014 (GOTY).  I decided to make a post here on my blog that is handy for references for patterns to purchase to make ballet clothing and accessories. I have also included tutorial links for ballet studio.
