I still have a few dolls who needed to be dressed.
My daughter made 2 dolls at a doll class we both took a few years ago.
I had dressed Serenity in baby clothes at the time which were too big,but I didn't have enough time to make the proper ones.
Today I was in the mood to start, finally.
I collected the patterns together and cut them out.
The picture on the right is Serenity. He is wearing a little shirt and overalls.
I cut out a vintage looking dress at the same time.
I thought while I am in the mood,why not.
I haven't a doll to fit the dress,but I'll see what it looks like when its done.
and maybe try and find a doll to suit.
This is Serenity's shirt, I am using fabric from my stash, pale blue with little yellow ducks.
For the overalls, blue chambray
I think he looks quite cute in them.
He has a very fat tummy,and I could hardly get them up over it.
Just needs his shirt to go with them.
Here he is in his new shirt and overalls
I made Sugar Britches, the doll next to him, at the same time Kerry Lee made Serenity.
I dressed her in a lace Christening gown.
I made it from a vintage Bridal train.
I still have to get her hair.
For now she can wear a bonnet
Doesn't he look so cute.
This is Posie,the other doll, Kerry Lee made
I dressed her at the time, but she still needed her hair
After about 5 yrs without any,I finally bought her a Shirley Temple wig.
I had lost one of her eyelashes too,so she got some new ones.
I can't believe the difference the hair makes.
After all she is a little girl,and she has been wearing a baby bonnet.
Even Ted is impressed. He got his new pants last week,when I was in the knitting mood.
I think her eyelashes are a bit long,but I don't think I dare attempt to cut them.
Well back to the sewing room, I am enjoying catching up on so many unfinished projects.
I have so much I want to do.
