Crafting On :: Doll Clothes

Whew!  I feel some relief (if only for a moment)!  I completed this big little project today and I'm so glad.  It's in the mail to Hawaii now.  Here are three girls' dresses for Waldorf dolls that I made a few years ago.  Aprons and bonnets to match, too.  I used the bonnet from Palumba that we got for Willow's doll, Marian.

Prairie Dresses

These are so sweet and the children have given me their orders for more.  I told them I needed a little break. It's time to knit, after all.  And make some other gifts.  Here are the pajamas and some clothes for the little boy doll that I also made elizabethhas7.

Pajamas and Boy Clothes

And here's Virginia's new nightgown and mob cap.  I used a plate as a pattern and it came out pretty well.  I'd use a bigger plate next time.  I use a pizza pan when I make the ones for us big folks.  I want a gown just like this.

Well, time to wash the dishes and settle in with some yarn and Victorian Farm. For more crafting, visit Frontier Dreams.

I think reds or yellows or pinks would go over quite well!

I love all the little clothes! But most especially the dolly's winter nightgown and cap. Elizabeth and Mona may need matching ones of something like that! I like how the bonnets came out. I made a doll bonnet by scaling down the child's pattern by Amy Karol. Honestly I think making doll's clothes can be just as involved as making children's clothes sometimes! I hope you are enjoying The Wizard. ;) - Stacey

Thank you! Those little aprons are quite involved! I wish I could magically make the pattern bigger and sew one for Willow. :-)

Thanks! One needs a big circle for the hat, so a pizza pan is perfect. :-)

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
