clothes for dollies

I've made quite a few dolly outfits this week.

4 elasticated skirts - the 2 on the left are made from needlecord, the 2 on the right are cotton:

2 dresses:

A denim skirt and denim shorts:

A sundress:

A kilt: the front - I used an old shoe buckle for the leather "closure". It doesn't really close it - that's done with velcro (as are all the other garments) so that wee fingers can do it themselves. Hopefully!

The back - I did try to do the proper matching of the sets but it wouldn't have fit the dolly if I'd done that so I just went with pleating it. I don't think it looks too bad at all. In fact, I am absolutely chuffed with the way it turned out!

A wee white blouse:

I asked Grace if she'd mind trying the blouse and kilt on and she was delighted to do so. She now wants me to make her a kilt as well! Please note, the safety pin has been squeezed tightly shut with pliers so there's no way wee girlies will be able to get that open!

Pants:

And finally 3 pinnies:

I had a lot of fun making these and am so pleased with everything I made - especially the kilt! C'mon the Scots! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 😀

  2. Everything is so lovely. I especially like the red skirt with the daisy detailing along the bottom. But garment of the week has to be that kilt. Gorgeous! ❤️ 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Well done. Amy will have a better wardrobe than I do! 🤣

    1. Thanks, Beanie! All the dollies have better wardrobes than we do! Mostly because they don't eat - or need to breathe! 🤣

  3. They're all fabulous, especially the kilt. Emily and Isla will have the best dressed dollies in town. You made a wonderful job of Big Wow and Wee Wows, I bet they were a big hit and I just love the rag dollies, they remind me of a lovely dolly that someone my mum knew made for me when I was a child. I wonder what happened to her. Thank you so much for all the kind comments you have left on recent posts, having such wonderful blog friends is a comfort at sad or trying times and I can't tell you how much your comments have helped.
