Sunday Doll Post: Birthday Wings

February 5, 2012

Say hello to Sally. Sally belongs to Pedro (or something like that. When I asked Pedro to bring my Mia [who is actually a Molly American Girl doll, you’ve seen her here before] up while visiting she also brought Sally to “give” me since she had no use for her, but I feel weird taking her since at one point she meant a lot to Pedro… maybe Pedro is less sentimental than me. She would say I’m more “creepy” than her.) Like Mia, Sally has been renamed. She is an original Samantha American Girl doll.

Anyways, Pedro got angry that I was only featuring Mia (“blatant favoritism”), so here is Sally in a new dress. Man, does she need a comb though.

Too bad the print is so busy (hypnotic?) because the lines of the pattern are really cute. I'll have to try it in a solid without the ruffles sometime.

Made using another free pattern for Mia’s birthday dress, the shoulder ruffles are a bit ridiculous because there are three on each shoulder and they refuse to stay down. Interestingly, this is the left over fabric from my attempt at the Pendrell blouse which also has interesting ruffle things inserted into the princess seams at the shoulders.

    Presumably the smaller scale of doll clothes means you need to use mega-drapey fabric?

    II like that print 🙂

      Haha, ya apparently the scale of things messes with the drape, but I’m just working with scraps 🙂

So, what do you think?
