Pink & Blue Picnic Dress

I made this dress for my cute little 3-year old cousin, who likes 1) dolls and 2) pink :).

The straight, blue-flowered skirt was one of the first pieces of doll clothing I made.  Then I used the complementing pink-eyelet cloth (which I also used for the Pink Picnic Dress) to make a top.  A sheer blue ribbon sash and hair bow complete the outfit.


Superheroine doll

We recently watched the Disney Pixar (animated) movie “The Incredibles,” which I really liked.  That movie was the main inspiration for this outfit 🙂  So I created this superheroine and an outfit for her–she has a backstory, family, superpowers, all that… 🙂

To start with, there’s the superhero staple–a spandex supersuit!  I made that out of a dark blue sock that had a great stretch to it.  It’s all one piece.  Then i took the silver corset and halter top off of the Sci-fi girl‘s outfit, because I felt it would look better with this outfit.  (You can read more about how I made the silver corset and top here.)  Red plastic boots (which I didn’t make) complete the outfit.

Pastel Peasant Dress

Pastel Peasant Dress

I really like peasant dresses!  They are pretty easy to make and are so versatile!  All you need are 2-3 complimentary colors and/or patterns, and a variety of dresses can be created, in different styles.  (You can see the first peasant dress I made here.)

This dress I made as a birthday present for my very good friend Hannah, who was also my music teacher before we moved.  Her favorite colors are yellow, green and blue, so I used the pastels I had in all those colors.

There’s the yellow chemise with gathered neck and sleeves, the blue skirt (a half-circle this time), and the green felt vest, laced up in back.  Also worn are a yellow flowered apron and a headband, made of a piece of pink trim.

Salwar Kameez

Salwar Kameez

My grandmother, knowing how much I like pretty doll clothes, sent me this doll for my birthday!  She is dressed in a traditional Asian Indian outfit (which I didn’t make :)) called a Salwar Kameez.

First there’s a tunic, which is sometimes slit up the sides to about the waist (this doll’s top isn’t slit–it’s closed like a dress).  Underneath are worn loose pants that are tightened at the ankle.  A dupatta (long rectangle of cloth like a shawl) completes the outfit.  There are many different ways to wear a dupatta; I just draped this one over the doll’s shoulder and put in a few stitches at the side to hold it.

Indian clothing often contains many beautiful, vibrant, complementary colors and patterns, and this outfit is no exception!

The doll is accessorized with a gold necklace, bangles, and earrings.

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 🙂

Picnic Dress

Picnic Dress

I made this dress as a Christmas present for my youngest sister (she likes pink :))

The material is from my grandmother’s sister. It’s a nice light pink with decorative eyelets sprinkled throughout. The dress is two layers of cloth while the sleeves are one. Hems are finished with a serge-type stitch on our sewing machine. A green satin ribbon belt cinches the dress at the waist and completes the outfit.
