This dress is made with a border fabric of little girls dancing barefoot around a Maypole with little butterflies floating above them. I really love this fabric and wanted to do something really special with it. I decided to continue the theme of the Maypole ribbon up the bodice added lace to the bottom edge, zigzag trim on the cuffed sleeves and installed a zipper in the back. To complete the look I added elastic bloomers with lace trim, a netted tulle half slip and white cotton slip to add more fullness to the dress and lastly made a matching hair ribbon. The shoes and tights were ordered through the My Twinn website. Don't you just love its pink frilly sweetness!
I love to sew for dolls and wanted a place where I could share my creations and enthusiam! Here's my latest creation. This dress is a birthday present for my daughter Megan. It is a 5 piece set consisting of cuffed bloomers, netter tulle half slip, dress, pinafore, and hair bow. Megan picked out the fabric herself and which doll she wanted it for. Doesn't Hailey look cute!
