Snowflake Dress


The final post for 2019 is here! Appropriately timed too, since we’re about to get a lot of snow tomorrow ūüôā

This dress came from the Winter Dress Contest entry by Noel Devine – see her original sketch in the pattern here. Doll is Our Generation Meagan available here: https://www.target.com/p/our-generation-doll-with-pet-golden-retriever/-/A-76150961

The tutorial details how to use cricut holographic film to create snowflake designs like I did, but note that even though I followed the package instructions to the letter, a couple of the snowflakes started peeling off at the edges a few hours later. ‚ėĻ I’d probably use freezer paper stencils and fabric paint if I were doing it over again, even though the sparkle effect is so cute.

Here is the png file for the snowflakes I made – see more info in the pattern.

4-season dress: fall


The colder it gets, the more layers we need‚Ķthis week I added leggings and a scarf.¬† The leggings pattern here will fit Little Darlings/Cheries and can be lengthened for H4H.¬† For 16″-18″¬†dolls, there‚Äôs a tights pattern in the ballerina/ice skater set, the Maru pattern combo, and the Kidz n Cats fairy set. ¬†(all available here) Just cut off to desired length to make leggings, which usually fall anywhere from just below the knee to ankle.¬† Stretch cotton ¬†or fleece make perfect doll scarves because they¬†don‚Äôt need hemming and usually drape nicely.¬† Cut a scrap from your leggings remnants or add some¬†color with another fabric.

If you’d like an “indoor” look, it probably goes without saying that adding a long-sleeved T underneath also makes a sleeveless dress work¬†for colder times too. ¬†This pattern can be adapted to make¬†a nicely fitted long-sleeved T (Missing AG sleeve is here)

I also did a T for Maru and Friends and forgot to ever post it here or put on etsy or something.  It would look nice under the A-line dress for them too!

I just love when you share interesting new things you’ve created with my patterns! ¬†Sr. Sarah Jean made the dress below using the bodice from the basic dress (from this year’s summer sew-along) (https://jenwrenne.wordpress.com/2014/06/13/summer-sew-along-part-2/) ¬†and skirt from this: https://jenwrenne.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/pointed-yoke-a-line.pdf. ¬†

I love the subtle contrast she got from using two shades of the same color
