Sunday Doll Post: Gathered Mumu
Every once in a while I feel the urge to sew something quick and dirty. My dolls are the perfect outlet for that feeling because I can make them anything from simple dresses out of old scraps to semi-elaborate historical outfits (the historical clothes are really fun when they’re finished because I love clothes inspired by past fashions but they’re not practical in my real life, so this way I can still make them and not feel bad about wasting my time and effort on something that will never get worn. I did at one point last summer seriously consider making a Civil War era dress for myself because of all the 150th anniversary inspiration around, but I came to my senses after thinking about all the undergarments and yards of fabric required). And since this is a blog about things I make, I figured why not post them? If this isn’t your thing or you think it’s “creepy” (like Pedro does), just skip these posts, I’ll keep them short.
First up, a simple cute gathered drawstring dress using a free pattern and made out of an old tierd skirt.
