SSA week 4


IMG_6934r (2)

This week’s dress is from the same set of paperdolls as the week 1 swimsuit.  Betsy wore it to travel to visit a friend.  Pleats and plaid/checks just seem to go so well together, but you could easily change this up by using a cute print or making the skirt gathered instead.

One more day and we will be home!  I’m very hopeful our house-sitter didn’t have any parties, or least cleaned up from them well 🙂 and that you’ve had fun sewing and posted your pix here: so I can have fun seeing them as soon as we’re back!  It makes me kind of sad to not be sharing awesome versions of everyone else’s outfits here, but even if you’re not participating, please check out the flickr link above to see other creative versions of these patterns!

  1. How cute is this! It even has a beginning-of-the-century flair! It is a beautiful take on this illustration and I thank you for creating this pattern and giving it to us!

  2. Know you haven’t been in the country to see all, but you managed to do a fabulous sew along anyway. Can’t thank you enough for all of the patterns and fun. Love seeing everyone’s outfits. Such a wonderful variety.

  3. i want to thank you for always designing patterns that i can use many many different ways and they are easy– hope you keep on the rest of the year with betsy mcall designs– just perfect for these 14 inch dolls

  4. Is the 1/4″ seam built into the pattern or do I need to add the seam? Thank you Marguerite

  5. I am still on vacation and will not return till July 2nd. Still have two more outfits to sew plus another one we might get this thursday. I will not be able to download the new ones till I get home. Hoping you give us a few extra days to finish up. Maybe till July 9 or ? Ss
