Peasant Dress

Peasant Dress

This dress I made as a Christmas gift for my second-youngest sister (also the one I made the 40’s style dress for).  The dress is similar to the Hobbit dress I made. As my sister’s favorite color is yellow, that’s what I made the theme 🙂  There’s a shirt/chemise of a pastel yellow, gathered at the neck and elbows with embroidery thread.  The skirt is a patterned, straight skirt, gathered at the waist with a drawstring.  The vest is the from Hobbit vest pattern, only in yellow felt.

The doll came from a different dollar store than where I usually get dolls, hence those funny pink shoes that don’t match at all 🙂


1940’s style dress

1940's style dress

I made this dress as a birthday gift for my younger sister.  The outfit has a 1940’s feel to it 🙂

There’s the sleeveless A-line underdress, that’s slightly below the knee.  Over that goes the jacket, which doesn’t close in front.  The doll wears white plastic pumps.  A green twistie-tie belt is worn in the last picture.



Here’s an original creation.  It’s based on early 20th century styles.

The dress has a pretty long train.  A twisted strip of lace makes a kind of sash in front that’s fastened at the side. There are lace sleeves, which are embellished with some crystal glitter glue, and a short lace cape.
