The last installment of the 1950s Christmas pattern was supposed to be a sock doll and dress. I debated for a while about the sock doll – it certainly seems possible to cut up a doll sock and turn it into a doll’s sock doll, but good ones are hard to come by and I hated to sacrifice a good doll sock. It also meant asking you to hunt down the same one I had and cut it up, all to make a doll that, honestly, I just don’t find to be that cute.
Instead, I made a pattern for a dress similar to the one the sock doll is wearing and you can put on a doll for your doll, like a Lottie and probably a mini AG/OG although I’m too tired to go hunt one of those down to check at the moment! Those dolls will fit in the stocking from last week, and in case you’ve missed them, here are all the other retro Christmas pattern links:
As I was planning next week’s post, I happened to look at the calendar and realized it’s Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day next Thursday. That just cries out to have something Nanea-related! The final installment of the Christmas projects will be the following week with the stocking and non-sock-doll (more about that later!).
Several people have requested a resize of Nanea’s ruffled dress from here for Wellies, so we could do that OR have have a new dress for Nanea. Which would you like?
