I have not dressed a doll since I was about 10 years old, and I am not a dress-maker, but I do like a challenge :)
The larger mannequin had already been dressed by my colleague, so I just needed to add a little something to it. I did this by adding a few layers of voile on top of the skirt piece of fabric, ruffling another piece of fabric for a sash style effect and adding some FABRIC FLOWERS.
The little mannequin was sadly naked, so she had to be started from scratch.
Taking some material that was laying about, I pinned and tucked, folded and pleated, added voile and some FABRIC FLOWERS and a silver ribbon sash, until she was modestly covered :)
Doesn't she look cute?
Feel free to make some FABRIC FLOWERS for yourself, would love to see what you do with them :)
