Hi There.....Do you have kids or grandkids?
I have a now 4-year-old granddaughter.....And the one thing she instantly does with a doll she gets in her hands.....She undresses it and puts it other clothes on.....So since I am kinda creative I felt it time to make something for her.....Actually not really for her but for her doll.....I decided to make her doll a new dress and I wanted to share that with you today because.....It is Monday so Needleworkmonday 😊
I went to the hobby fair a while ago and there I bought myself some fabrics and a book to make baby clothes.....But that was a mistake.....Oh yes, I do occasionally make mistakes.....I am not perfect.....Just Almost perfect 😂
No no, the fabric was no mistake but the book was.....The baby born doll I was making the dress for is only 34 cm and a lot tinier than a baby 😔
I will buy myself a new book shortly but for now, I based the dress on something the doll was wearing
This is how it looks at the moment but I will explain the steps I took further in my blog 😊
So to start with I drew the lines of the garment on my fabric.....It wasn't easy but I did it anyway.
So after I cut the fabric I did all the edges with a zigzag stitch
Then to make a belt I folded a long strap together and sewed the sides together
Then I turned it inside out.....That took soooo long because it was such a thin belt.....It is best to do this with a knitting needle
Then I stitched the body parts together
And then I put the sleeves in
I am afraid you will have to wait for the rest because I had to stop sewing because it was dinner time 😀
Hope you like my blog post.....Until next time.....Have a great day
Behind every unique handmade piece is a lot of hard work. It's a labor of love and every piece you buy will make someone's day a happy day.
