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.

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.

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.

Brown Coat


Brown Coat

This dress I did not make–it was one of the ones that come with the dolls from the store.

The coat I made in the style of Eowyn’s coat she wears with the Refugee Jumper in “The Two Towers”; however, I wanted mine to have a more modern look so I made the sleeves smaller and the neckline higher.  Instead of fur trim, I used chenille stems.  My coat is made of felt, which gives a nice look. It’s also quite stiff.  Since my trim has wire, that helps fix the problem and shape the coat.  There’s a dart in the back to improve fit.

The coat closes in front with hooks and eyes.

Rose dress

This dress was cut from the theatrical version of “Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring”, but I found a pattern for it and also had the material, so I made it.  The pretty underdress has roses on a light pink background.

This is second time I made this dress–I’ve sold the original.  I added the gold paint, then decided I liked it better plain 😀
