I think Baby Doll will look SO SWEET in her new dress... if I can only get her in it... she's going through her naked phase (thankfully she still keeps her diaper on MOST of the time). Really, who can blame her? It hits 100 here most days. This would be a much bigger problem in January!
The pattern is Simplicity 3508. I have made it once before and decided to modify it slightly this go 'round. I shortened it a little and added a ruffle to the bottom.
I tatted my own lace for the collar.
And I made my own bias tape.
All in all, making the dress was the easy part, getting it on a clothes-resistant squirmer will be the REAL challenge!
UPDATE!!! June 27
Baby Doll was EAGER to put her dress on this morning and has worn it ALL DAY LONG! I see more mommy clothes in her future...
