These past few days I've been working on all sort of different projects. First of all, I ventured myself to make doll clothes. I found this cute vintage Strawberry Shortcake at a thrift store. I bought it, because I could not resist it's cute face and hair. The doll itself was in great condition. I was a little dusty, but after I washed it, it looked like new.
The doll came with the robe/dress you see on the picture bellow, and I thought it would look much better if I made a new outfit for it. So, I drafted a patterns for the doll, featuring flutter sleeves, and a tiny apron on the front of the dress. Isn't cute?
I think the doll looks 100% better with the new outfit!
I also added a light blue gingham ribbon to the hair, to make it look even cutter :)
I just loved making doll clothes, because it was quick and it gave me almost instant gratification.
Pleated Playsuit ( Remember this one?)
I also made another E+E pleated playsuit (free pattern here). This time I used whimsical owl fabric and light pink and white polka dot fabric. I love how these two fabrics complement each other on this garment. What do you think?
And the bow straps are also great!
Thanks for visiting my blog, and don't forget to checkout this free pattern from Elegance and Elephants.
