Buttercup jumper #2


Buttercup jumper #2

This is the second outift Buttercup wears in the movie “The Princess Bride.”  It’s worn as she says goodbye to Westley.  True, not a very well known one, but I really liked it.  The chemise is 3/4 sleeved and the dark blue jumper looks like a vest because of the apron worn over it.

Hobbit dress


Hobbit dress

Okay…I know, these fashion dolls are definitely built more like Elves than Hobbits, but I wanted the variety, so I made this one.  It’s shorter than it looks–a little below the knee.  It’s loosely based on Rosie’s party dress (at Bilbo’s 111th birthday).  But it could be any generic Hobbit-girl.

The chemise, a basic T-shape (no set in armholes), has a gathered neck and sleeves and is the wrong side of a floral material, so you can see the print, which I liked. The skirt is a gathered straight skirt. I used a decorative applique-like stitch to fix the piece of cloth with the embroidered flower to the bright blue felt vest.
