Vintage Simplicity 2002 - in miniature
We had an icy snow last week which made getting out of the house quite difficult and going to Hancock's to get the thread I needed quite impossible! I had planned to make another dress for the shop but with the ice and the lack of thread... so instead I dug through my scraps and made a new outfit for Paige. I really really wanted to use the floral material but there just wasn't enough for a whole dress. I found the check fabric and was inspired by one of my vintage patterns and I think you know the rest! Oh, and no, I did not make the pattern myself, I altered a basic doll dress pattern I had. The little petticoat is just three rectangles (one muslin, two tulle) gathered into a waistband. I made the socks and shoes using this book. The shoes were not as hard as I thought they would be but I still have glue on fingers!
