Emma received a new doll for her birthday. I spent some time this weekend digging through the scrap box and sewing up a dress for "Mabel". The embroidery design is from Embroidery Companion by Alicia Paulson.

Will : Where's Elizabeth?
Jack: She's safe, just like I promised. She's all set to marry Norrington, just like she promised. And you get to die for her, just like you promised. So we're all men of our word really... except for, of course, Elizabeth, who is in fact, a woman.

As you can see from my sidebar this week was Nancy Drew Fashion Week! Unfortunately my plans for participating were interrupted by the temporary loss of my camera. I now have it back though and can at least get a couple of posts in which makes me very happy!
I didn't have the time or the funds to make myself a Nancy inspired vintage outfit so instead I made one for someone else...
Inspired by the first Nancy Drew book, The Secret of the Old Clock, (which someone returned to the library, oh well) and this lovely vintage suit pattern I made a new outfit for my dolly Paige.
I used muslin for the little blouse and a linen/cotton blend from Jo-Ann's for the skirt and jacket. I used patterns from the book The Doll's Dressmaker by Venus A. Dodge for the blouse and jacket though I altered them quite a bit. I did not use a pattern for the skirt.
