Spring is my favorite season of the year! The birds singing, the snow melting, and colorful bulbs pushing up through last year’s leaves make it a magical time. It might even BE spring where you live, but where I live we apparently have a few more months to wait. And what better way to wait than sewing a dress your dolls can jump into as soon as those crocuses come up?
It’s based on a Bleuette dress from May, 1933, and has been resized to fit Maplelea/AG. What originally attracted me to it was the lovely cross stitch motifs, but it’s a nice, basic pattern that could work for a lot of modern outfits too!
Make it in T-shirt fabric, iron on a glittery motif and wear with leggings. Find a fabulous print and take it to the next level with ruffles/ribbon/rickrack. More ideas are in the pattern.
And if you’re still wanting to make stuff to wear right now when it’s cold, check out Anna’s cute slippers here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/129049505@N06/16554605595/
She added a few touches to turn the felted slippers into little mice!
