A new sister - a real treat.
This is the challenge fabric that Diane picked - we can use any other fabric with the chosen one (music notes) and I decided to use a small red print - perfect for summer dresses. Stop over and visit Diane and see what she made from this fabric- I can't wait to see what she has made.
Sally Jo is the new doll, on the left. A gift from our son and daughter-in-law when they were here visiting from West Virginia. She is making friends and enjoying her stay with us. Abby is happy to have another doll in the family.
Today they posed on the deck, with pretty flowers in the background
Sally Jo's dress is from a free patter found HERE - I added the ruffle, just because I love ruffles. The pattern has sizes for little girls, if you have a daughter or granddaughter to sew for, and doll size. The pattern is free and downloadable so you don't have to wait for it to arrive.
I added the ruffle to the pattern, just because I love ruffles.
And a cute scarf of music fabric and red binding
Abby's dress is from McCalls pattern 6137. It is discontinued, but can be found on ebay quite reasonably. The hat is from the same pattern.
The ruffle was included in the pattern and is the perfect finishing touch to the sun dress
The hat is red fabric, lined with music fabric - great for a sunny afternoon
Sally Jo and Abby can switch hats/head scarves too - since all the pieces match
The deck is fun - and smells so good with sweet peas and purple petunias blooming.
Sharing is fun!!
And we can switch back and forth all day
