It’s daffodil time!


This is my favorite time of year!  Birds are singing and flying around busily with twigs and bits of fluff for their nests and every little flower pushing its way up out of the dirt makes me smile.  Every time I go for a walk I keep taking deep breaths to smell the beautiful blossoms on all the bushes and trees.

This week’s dress celebrates daffodil time!  It’s such a simple pattern, it seems to cry out for lace and embroidery and trim, but in this case I stuck with the simplicity of a daffodil – just some petals and a ruffle.

  1. Thank you! I was wondering how this dressy dress from the pattern would turn out in real life! I love that you chose this lovely yellow! Kendall looks too cute in it, with the daffodils! I loved this series and thank you for the efforts into the creation of patterns that fit well two different dolls! I’m looking forward to your series of embroidered dresses. I wish I would have time to get a dress or two ready, but since it’s the end of the semester that is beginning now, I don’t see how I’d find time to get the sewing machine out before the 26th! But I have plans for your great patterns when the semester is over!

  2. Definitely need incentive here. Dollies have not been top priority as of late, but I’ll give it a try.
    A very cute Wellie pattern too. Love your photo. Reminds me that I must pull weeds pronto.

    • Most of these were done on a Brother SE400 with a 4×4 hoop. These designs will be available later this week in pes format as part of the new 1950s collection!
