It's been a pretty busy year for our family. But I am still here! And I've been sewing quite a bit lately. As always, I find it therapeutic!!!
A friend from church asked me to make custom outfits for two of her childhood dolls. I had so much fun with both. For this doll the only request was to make a white dress. So I made it a bit heirloom by giving it pintucks, hem tucks, entredeux, and lace. The doll's cloth body is pretty wide so the dress looks a bit boxy - but it does fit the doll well. Now she has a new cotton batiste dress, bonnet, and bloomers. She is adorable!
I have also been doing some 18" doll sewing, and some quilting. Plus I have a few new techniques to share soon!!!
