I mentioned in my first post about this doll that my daughter’s two grandmas were going to make outfits for her doll. I won’t be showing them in this post, just the two dresses that I personally made for the doll.
When I was choosing materials to make the doll herself, I showed my daughter the pictures on the cover of the pattern. I was trying to get her input about the hairstyle I should give the doll, but my daughter focused in on the dresses! One of the dolls has a pink dress, and from this point forward, my daughter has referred to this doll (when she remembers about it– she hasn’t received the doll quite yet) as her “pink dolly.” Therefore, a pink dress was an absolute must.
On another trip to the fabric store, I had my daughter pick out some pink fabric (I narrowed the selection down to a few choices for her first). She picked this cheerful bright one, and it was the first dress I sewed up.
Most of the doll’s clothes (including the undersuit, which can be seen in my first post about the doll) are made from scraps of fabric from other projects. Her second dress is orange…
(Any guesses as to where this fabric was first used? ;-))
I made a coordinating “diaper” as I attempted to modify my diaper pattern.
I have the pieces cut for one more dress– with fabric that matches a dress of my daughter’s (made by my mom!). If I get a chance, I’d like to make it up for her soon!
